As the plot [of Wives and Other Women] flashes between 1970 and today, Klein relates the story of three warm, sympathetic characters who point out the author's central themes—that women see each other as either wives or mistresses and that this can be a repeating pattern of their lives…. Full of insights, realistic dialogue, and warm and human interactions, this is engrossing and lively recommended reading.

Marilyn Lockhart, in a review of "Wives and Other Women," in Library Journal, Vol. 107, No. 11, June 1, 1982, p. 1112.
