Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today. My review this time around is for the book The Wife’s Choice by Emma Davies.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Below you’ll find the description of the book provided by NetGalley followed by my personal review and star rating. Enjoy!
Tell your most devastating secret, or risk losing your only daughter…
Then: Twenty years ago, Alys’ husband, Sam, was in a terrible car accident that left him fighting for his life. His recovery was slow and painful and, just at the point when Alys began to hope, he sent her away, refusing to see her ever again for reasons she could never understand.
Now: Married again and living in a new town with a new family, Alys feels like she’s sleepwalking through life. She’s just lost her job, her grown-up daughter is flying the nest, and her new husband doesn’t see – or even seem to care about – the downward spiral she is in.
But a chance encounter changes everything. As the life she could have had crashes into the one she settled for, Alys must decide whether or not to reveal the lie she’s been telling everyone all these years. Will it tear apart the ones she loves, or could it set them free?
My Review :
This book was such a treat. I felt like each page hit me with a new set of emotions.
I kind of related to Alys in the sense of looking back on my life and wondering “what am I doing here?” So as a whole as a character I could really empathize with her in some aspects.
Her adult life she felt like she was living this huge lie – which was told to accommodate her husband. But when a man from her past reappears in her life, she is forced to confront these issues head on.
I know that she is a grown woman – but it kind of felt like we got to watch her grow up…maybe a better term would be blossom.
I don’t want to say too much to spoil it, so if you love page turning family dramas then this would be a great book for you!
