The Headmaster’s Wife by Thomas Christopher Greene
Arthur Winthrop, headmaster of a prestigious New England private school, is being questioned by New York City police after being found wandering naked in the snow in Central Park. So begins The Headmaster’s Wife.
This book is not what you think it is as you begin reading. It is a psychological tale about the effects of guilt and grief on two individuals and how they each cope with their feelings. Could I say more? Of course. Will I? No. This is a changeable tale that goes topsy turvy right about in the middle. This is a book best savored snuggled in a quilt and a steaming cup of tea or cocoa and a mind willing to be played with a bit as the reader reads on.
