The Way I’ve Heard It Should Be

By Rachel Cullen (April 2016)

Pelham resident Rachel Cullen sets her debut novel about four suburban women close to home. Gretchen, Olivia, Laura, and Danielle seem to live picture-perfect lives as doting housewives and mothers in the wealthy town of Rye. Behind closed doors, however, each woman is dissatisfied and makes reckless decisions that could lead to catastrophe. Cullen’s writing, told through multiple perspectives, is simultaneously simplistic and engrossing. Perfect for the beach or a lazy Sunday afternoon, readers will dive right into the surprisingly relatable situations that unfold as the pages turn and won’t come up for air until the back cover is shut.
