Yet again Green ventures into the world of family relationships-this time between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. In fact, the mother-in-law is the eponymous "other woman" who plagues each of the characters in the marriages Green brings to life. Ellie marries Dan, whose mother, Linda, wants to plan every aspect of their lives, from the marriage to the baby&apos,s room. The other marriages depicted are no less uncomfortable. Josephine Bailey brings these situations to life in quiet tones with inflections that run from stoic to frustrated to angry. While Bailey&apos,s narration is superb, Green&apos,s story is not for the faint of heart or the shaky relationship.
