Finding Mrs. Ford

A Novel

By Deborah Goodrich Royce
Narrated by Saskia Maarleveld / 9 hours 35 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation

Finding Mrs. Ford

“Finding Mrs. Ford not only has a gorgeous cover, but the pages contain a stunning story. Allow me to set this up for you. Two detectives show up at the door of Mrs. Ford's waterfront mansion in Watch Hill, RI. The gentlemen tell Mrs. Ford that they just took an Iranian man into custody at the airport. He told them that he was on his way to talk with her. This book is chock full of hairpin turns. I dare you to put this rollercoaster of a thriller down. The narration on this book is pleasing to the ear.”

On a sunny summer morning by the sea in New England, Susan Ford’s cocoon of privilege is threatened when an Iraqi man from her distant past boards a plane in Baghdad to come find her.

Mrs. Ford leads a privileged life. From her Blenheim spaniels to her cottage on the coast of Watch Hill, Rhode Island, she carefully curates her world. Hair in place, house in place, life in place, Susan Ford keeps it under control.

Early one morning in the summer of 2014, the past pays a call to collect. The FBI arrives to question her about a man from Iraq—a Chaldean Christian from Mosul—where ISIS has just seized control. Sammy Fakhouri, they say, is his name and they have taken him into custody, picked up on his way to her house.

Back in the summer of 1979, on the outskirts of a declining Detroit, college coed Susan meets charismatic and reckless Annie. They are an unlikely pair of friends, but they each see something in the other—something they’d like to possess. Studious Susan is a moth to the flame that is Annie. Yet, it is dazzling Annie who senses that Susan will be the one who makes it out of Detroit.

Together, the girls navigate the mine fields of a down-market disco where they work their summer jobs. It’s a world filled with pretty girls and powerful men, some of whom—like Sammy Fakhouri—happen to be Iraqi Chaldeans.

What happened in that summer of 1979 when Susan and Annie met? Why is Sammy looking for Susan all these years later? And why is Mrs. Ford lying?
