Novelist Sue Miller gets very intimate, very quickly, and stays there. Her best-sellers have captivated readers since "The Good Mother." Now, she's pushing into the complex heart of marriage and, in this election year, political marriage — one of the most fraught kinds.

"The Senator's Wife" is a novel that goes at the deep compromises that get made along the way in marriage. Sometimes very deep, as two people — and maybe more — struggle to make something humane out of betrayal.
