Summary

Paul Starr, Ireland's leading cardiologist, dies in a car crash with a young woman by his side. United in their grief and the love of one man, four women are thrown together in an attempt to come to terms with life after Paul. They soon realise they never really knew him at all. As they begin to form unlikely friendships, Paul's death is the catalyst that enables them to become the people they always wanted to be.

Disappointing!

I think this is Faith Hogan’s first novel. I am disappointed in it. Having read her others (all 4/5* reads), I was expecting great things. The first half or so if this book is good. Sadly, the second half doesn’t live up to that. The women’s responses to Paul’s death and their associated discoveries are just too bland. The characters move from being strong, independent minded women to being weak, flat shadows of their former selves. Don’t let this put you off Faith’s books. The others are excellent.

Terrible, woman hating and appalling

Normalizing domestic psychological abuse, glorifying chauvinism and promoting charem syndrome. Teaching women to be happy in destructive relationships, promoting male supremacy mentality that families are made of a single male with the numerous females he has collected and their offspring. Horrific justifications of adultery, making it a woman's duty to accept manipulation and narcissism in the name of motherhood and family values. A very damaging book to anyone trying to find her identity as a woman in a man's world. Morale of this truly evil story is women must cult- worship the man who lies to them and destroyed their lives, their children's lives and their chance of happiness.
