Caesar’s Wife, Patrick Gale’s story of illicit romance between a millionaire married tycoon and a career-led single girl is removed
of emotional and passion. Situations change when his wife dies and she years for their secret life to continue untinged by normality (i.e. marriage)… The novellas compliment each other, and although sad, sorry tales, each leaves one with a nice
feeling with reinforces our need for an element of secrecy in our lives.
