Chandler Baker, the New York Times bestselling author of the Whisper Network, talks to Carol Fitzgerald about her newest novel, The Husbands.

The Husbands follows Nora Spangler, an attorney with more than her career on her plate. She’s up for partnership at her law firm, but at home she’s juggling everything for the house and kids. Her husband works hard at the office, but on the home front his task list is a lot lighter, and he is a lot more relaxed. When they plan a move to a new neighborhood, Nora finds the women there less challenged by their household tasks; their husbands are helping out a lot more around the house. What’s happening there?

Chandler and Carol talk about “the second shift” and what it means for women, especially those with young children -- as well as the nod this book has to The Stepford Wives. Chandler talks about the book that her friends were reading and discussing that inspired the story. Chandler also talks about writing the screenplay. They discuss the characters and relate their choices to their own lives, all while doing their best not to give anything away.
