It has become almost a cliché to describe a novel as a `page turner,' but in this instance, the description is apt. The writing is never forced, and the pressure never lifts from Bianca, her mother, and her twin brother; each with their own, often conflicting, hopes and dreams, but all of them struggling against increasingly anti-Semitic government policies and harsh new realities.
Occasionally, a work of fiction appears that transcends mere genre and simple entertainment and enters a new level of literary worth. A Suitable Husband is a book that is a truly modern look at the issues that face all of us in a rapidly-changing world. It is one of those books that has the potential to change the reader in a profound way.
