Talk follows the story of Lesley Weslock, ex-wife of millionaire Edward Weslock, the president of Church's shoes, who ran away from home and disappeared for five years, "wiping out the couple's bank accounts." His ex-wife had to disguise and sleuth, in order to get him arrested and to receive partial justice many years later. "Lesley didn't get mad. She simply found herself a $10-an-hour job and embarked on a five-year global mission to find him," the magazine reports.
