My Recommendation

MoMo’s Book Diary recommends The Silent Wife by Kerry Fisher as a 4star read.
Kerry Fisher’s latest novel ‘The Silent Wife’ is packed full of family secrets and earth shattering betrayals that will leave your mouth open in disbelief again and again.  The characters are brought to life in such a way you can easily relate to their individual personalities. The Farinelli family certainly has high expectations! The author expertly looks at the complicated relationships with step-children, in-laws, and the constant reminders of the first wives and mothers. 

Told in alternating views of Lara (married to Massimo) and Maggie (married to Nico) this is a poignant story the lengths women are prepared to go for the sake of their families. I was gripped from the start and enjoyed page after page until the last chapter. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read and review The Silent Wife (also known as 'The Secrets of Second Wives' as it was known pre-publication) by Kerry Fisher.
