*** stars Leslie Anne Greene Carter is the last original wife among her husband's group of cronies. They've all traded in their first wives-the middle-aged women they long ago promised to love and cherish 'til death did them part-for riper peaches: younger . . . blonder . . . more enhanced models. Leslie is proud of her status and the longevity of her marriage. Sure the spark isn't quite as bright. And it wouldn't be too much to ask if her husband paid just an itty bit more attention to her desires. But there's something to be said for a comfortable and deeply familiar relationship. Or at least she thinks until the day, out walking with her husband and his friends, she slips into a manhole. Nobody realizes that she's gone. That one misstep opens Leslie's eyes to the sham her perfect life has become. No longer will she be invisible. No longer will she accept being taken for granted. With the healing powers of South Carolina's lush white beaches, beautiful sunsets, and endearing and funny residents, Leslie is going to transform herself and reclaim the strong, vibrant, sexy woman she was meant to be. The Last Original Wife is classic Dorothea Benton Frank: a tale of friendship and love. Ms. Frank creates great characters - very nice read. Even at 60 it is not too late to reclaim your life and make your own choices. Recommend.
