Gillian Sach is almost fifty, in an unhappy marriage to a Congressman, and is tired of pretending perfection for the public eye. When she finds out her husband, Jack, is having yet another affair, she pledges to leave him as soon as his election is over. During this time, Gillian also discovers the effect Jack’s infidelity has had on her children, now grown. As she bides her time and plans an escape from her current situation, she must face her past and its truths head on.
In Releasing Gillian’s Wolves, we are given an inside look into why political wives often stay in unhappy marriages, rather than have the scandal be put in the public eye. Although, at times, the reader may ask why Gillian has stayed for so long, the question is immediately answered with a lifetime of dutiful explanations. This story shows the strength and courage of one woman, as well as the lengths she goes to in order to maintain normalcy for her family.
Tara Woolpy has given us a likable and relatable character in Gillian, even if we don’t always agree with her choices. Releasing Gillian’s Wolves proves that it is easy to judge from the outside looking in, but it is how one gets out that matters the most. Gillian shows us that it is never too late to take back your life, and to live it how you choose.
This book can be purchased at Amazon.com, as well as your local independent bookseller.
