THE WIFE SCHOOL
Arnold Souche has everything under control. He made a mistake with his first wife, but his second wife will be perfect. So that she doesn’t get any wild ideas, he sends her to an all-girls school in Switzerland to be raised by nuns, and gives her in the dowdiest clothes possible. Amelia is content to go along with Arnold, until the day Ben arrives in her life and suddenly she realizes that nothing can replace passion and love. But if she leaves Arnold, she’ll owe him a quarter of a million dollars, and suddenly true love is looking like something she’ll never attain.
To My Readers: I’m a classics lover, so some of you will recognize Moliére’s influence in this tale. But the theme of man wanting to control woman and being thwarted by true love is a classic. How many well-laid plans have gone awry because Cupid shot his arrow and hit the wrong target? I hope you have as much fun reading this comedy of arrows – er, errors, as I had writing it!
