While The Traitor's Wife was written for adults, it is a perfect novel for high school students to read. The book is engaging and reads quite quickly, as it is mainly character and dialogue driven. It really gives a fascinating snapshot into a specific time frame of United States history, especially how different daily life was back then. When I finished the book, I immediately thought it would be perfectly paired with the award winning Steve Sheinkin title, The Notorious Benedict Arnold. Both books are written clearly and crisply, and will hold the attention span of high school students looking for those "common core" titles.
