The Dream Wife

Annie is the dream wife.

Mother to two-year-old Johnny and wife to David, she is everything her husband expects her to be – supportive, respectful and mild – but what he expects of her isn’t who she truly is.

Annie is a prisoner in her home.

Her finances, her routine, her social life are all controlled by him. It’s the love for her boy that she lives for, and at night she dreams of a world where she is free.

But Annie is going to fight back.

And you won’t believe how she is going to do it . . .


What other people are saying…

‘A clever tale where things aren’t what they seem . . . The real cleverness lies in the way the plot and those dreams weave together. This is simple thriller-writing at its best.’

Daily Mail

‘In a crowded thriller market, it’s hard to stand out, but  Louisa de Lange pulls it off with a could-never-have-predicted-that-ending.

Good Housekeeping

‘A hugely promising debut. Overturns every assumption you have at the beginning in a startling and clever twist.
