Publisher's Summary

Lara's life looks perfect on the surface. Gorgeous doting husband Massimo, sweet little son Sandro and the perfect home. Lara knows something about Massimo. Something she can't tell anyone else or everything Massimo 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. She knows all of Nico's darkest secrets - or so she thinks. The one day she discovers a letter in the attic which reveals a shocking secret about Nico's first wife Caitlin. Will Maggie set the record straight or keep a lie to protect those she loves?

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

    Story
    "Two women- one family."

    Bought this audio for a long car journey and ended up making excuses to listen to it- gardening, walking dogs, bed time......
    Not a thriller, or weird or any of that kind of thing. Just a good read (listen to).
    The chapters alternate between two characters whose lives seem perfect to eachother but who both have their own issues.

    "Amazing"

    I absolutely loved this book! I literally couldn't stop listening. The story and the characters are so interesting you'll be drawn in within minutes.
    I can't wait to try the rest of Kerry Fishers books.

    "Would Not Recommend"
    What did you like best about The Silent Wife? What did you like least?

    The whole book was confusing. The characters were not clearly positioned and the endless back and forth between characters left me wishing I had not bothered.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kerry Fisher before, how does this one compare?

    I have not listed to Kerry Fisher's books before and would not do so again.


    What three words best describe Emma Spurgin-Hussey’s performance?

    Irritating. Did not like the attempts at Italian accent when no attempt was made to make differences between other characters voices.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No - definitely not.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Nothing happens!!"

    There isn't much to say about this book because nothing really happens in it! The narrator does a good job, but the story doesn't go anywhere. Boring.

    Story
    "Loved it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My audio books are usually in the non-fiction category since I prefer to read my fiction, but after the glowing reviews I had seen for this book, I decided to get it. I could not stop listening to it! The narrator was terrific and her English accent was perfect for the setting of the book which was in London. The characters were complex and the plot had some unexpected twist and turns. 5 stars all the way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Complex plot, well-developed characters and unexpected turns


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - but at 9 hours in length - I couldn't!

    A bit predictable at moments and the Laura character was difficult for me to like ... I wanted her to buck up !!! But I like how it wrapped up.

    "Best Book I has read/listen this year !!"

    This book is great. I usually shy away from novels of female spouse abuse, because I have been there. But a good friend said I would love it. She was so right, completed in one session. The hope , inspiration, joy , and love made this novel great. Best book I have read all year and usually listen/read five books a week. That God for retirement, wish I had time to read more when I was younger. Worth the credit to listen or money to buy digital book, I did both.Thankyou Ms Fisher!

    "Super fun listen"

    I knew nothing about this author but the book looked interesting so I bought it with zero expectations. Well, I already bought another book from this author and I'm looking forward to reading it. The silent wife it's great story. Not too dark but not too light. All the characters are real and relatable, the story has some twists but nothing totally out there and the narrator is great.
