The Silent Wife by Kerry Fisher

In this heart-wrenching, emotionally gripping USA Today bestseller, two women with seemingly perfect lives discover dark secrets from the past that threaten to destroy their families.

Lara's life looks perfect on the surface. She has a gorgeous doting husband in Massimo, her sweet little son, Sandro, and the perfect home. But Lara knows something about Massimo. Something she can't tell anyone else, or everything he has worked so hard for will be destroyed: his job, their reputation, their son. This secret is keeping Lara a prisoner in her marriage.

Maggie is married to Massimo's brother, Nico, and lives with him and her troubled stepdaughter. She knows all of Nico's darkest secrets-or so she thinks. Then one day she discovers a letter in the attic that reveals a shocking secret about Nico's first wife. Will Maggie set the record straight or keep silent to protect those she loves?

For a family held together by lies, the truth will come at a devastating price.

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
3.5 stars
M/F Family Drama
Triggers: This is a very drama filled story with intense family dynamics.

Maggie and Lara are the wives of Nico and Massimo. You are kind of dropped into the story without much introduction.

Nico is marrying Maggie. His wife died from cancer and his daughter isn't too happy about the merging of a new family. Maggie's son, Sam, is all too happy to have more family.

Massimo and Lara have a son, Sandro. Lara and Sandro have a life that anyone would dream of. Massimo is seen as the doting father and husband. But behind closed doors, their lives are anything but wonderful.

Then you have the matriarch, Anna. She's just a difficult character to like. She's critical of Lara and Maggie, but also so blind to her son's behavior that I found myself wanting someone to slap her.

Throughout the tangled family dynamics, there are a few secrets that are floating around. Throw in budding teenage drama and this family finds itself in a pressure cooker. There were times that I was so enthralled with the story and how it would unfold. But it was usually followed by a long stretch of nothing. There was so much description without a lot of movement.

Despite the slowness and repetitive nature of the story, I did enjoy watching Maggie and Lara find their own way.

Born in Peterborough, England, Kerry Fisher studied French and Italian at Bath University. She lived in Corsica, Spain, and Italy before returning to Britain to work as a journalist. She now lives in Surrey with her husband and two teenagers and writes fiction full-time. When she’s not writing, she can be found in her garden or walking her lab/giant schnauzer on the Surrey Hills.
