Who was Ken Kimble? Certainly an enigma to his three wives, each of whom he deserted one way or another. An enigma to me too - but the subject of a thoroughly engrossing read and one that I will be recommending to my reading group - not least so that we can all discuss what (may have) made the man tick. Watch out for the change of voice with the change of wife - it can be difficult to keep up.
For weeks after he left, she'd wandered around the house in a daze; then, one afternoon she'd ransacked his closets, his home office, looking for proof that he'd loved her. She found no letters, no photographs, no mementos saved in a sentimental moment; only canceled checks, bank statements, receipts for things he'd bought. These were the only traces he'd left behind, a history of luxuries purchased and consumed.
