I was given a copy of Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund. I can't give you much of a review because I didn't finish the book. I found the story about Captain Ahab's Wife, as a follow up to Moby Dick, less than plausible. I have enjoyed other books by Sena Jeter Naslund, such as Abundance - the story of Marie Antoinette. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this.

From the cover:
From the opening line - "Captain Ahab was neither my first husband nor my last" - you will know that you are in the hands of a master storyteller and in the company of a fascinating woman hero. Inspired by a brief passage in Moby Dick, Sena Jeter Naslund has created and enthralling and compelling readable saga, spanning a rich, eventful and dramatic life. At once a family drama, a romantic adventure, and a portrait of a real and living marriage, Ahab's Wife gives a new perspective on the American experiences.
