"The Other Woman" by Darlene Winston is a beautiful story that follows one woman's fight for her marriage despite the machinations of an interfering mother-in-law. The idyllic marriage between two successful professionals is threatened by the husband's scheming mother and their trust in and rapport with each other is sorely tested by the challenges which alter the dynamics of their family. Their young children are caught in the conflict and may be the biggest losers in the tug of war between a wife and her husband's mother. Will faith be enough to save the marriage or will the `other woman' succeed in her goal to destroy the relationship?

This lovely romance showcases the challenges faced by a strong professional woman who must fight against her husband's conditioned response to his mother who objects to the relationship. I enjoyed the portrayal of the close and supportive relationships within the respective families even as I sympathized with the heroine's difficult situation with her mother-in-law (that I fear is familiar to many wives). I was a little disturbed by the length of time that the resolution took despite the realism of the situation but I think that the author does a wonderful job of displaying the emotionalism inherent in the various conflicts that epitomize the issues that result from judgemental family members. This heartwarming story is a tribute to the power of faith and the importance of understanding underlying motivations before making judgements.
