Summary

Very good in parts but much too long

What did you like best about The Foster Husband? What did you like least?

The story was much better than the title or blurb would lead you to believe, with more meat to it, it was not a "jolly" chiclit story but something deeper and sadder. I found some of the jumps from the present to the past a bit confusing and though I liked the ending (unlike some other reviewers) I felt that it was dragged out too long and I was beginning to lose sympathy with the heroine, Kate.

Would you be willing to try another book from Pippa Wright? Why or why not?

I have read and enjoyed other books by Pippa Wright

What does Gabrielle Glaister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator did a good job but I don't think that reading the book would have made any difference to the way I felt about it.

Could you see The Foster Husband being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No
