As the days passed, her memory returned, and all the deceitful things she had done in the past came rushing to the forefront. Her most unforgivable transgression was denying Enrico his daughter Melita. She knew he regretted their passionate night together, but she never should have let him think his daughter belonged to Matteo. Just because he didn't want her didn't mean he wouldn't love his little girl.
Enrico found out Melita was his when she was kicked by a horse resulting in a stay at the hospital. Faye wanted to tell him in some other way, but couldn't risk him finding out from someone else. She and Matteo had so many secrets between them, but this was one she couldn't bare anymore. She would do whatever it took to protect Matteo's privacy, and handle the consequences of their actions because she knew how angry Enrico would be.
Multi layered characters are well written, and the story is packed with emotional content. Enrico lives a life based on deep family expectations and traditions. He doesn't express himself well personally, and this is his cross to bear. Faye has loved and admired Enrico all her life, but she was never able to be with him the way she wanted to be. After Matteo's death, it is heart wrenching to see them try to piece their lives back together.
Waking up in the hospital room with temporary memory loss, Faye is stunned by the fact that she is a mother and she's married to Matteo. As her memory slowly returns so does all the lies, and the biggest one being Enrico and not Matteo is her daughter's father. As her mind continues to block out the events leading up to Matteo's death, Faye finds herself in turmoil dealing with not only her friend's death, but also her love for Enrico that has grown stronger than ever, and the lies and deceit that threaten to destroy her.
I found Faye to very infuriating. I understood why she believed she had to go to the extremes she did to keep her daughter's paternity a secret, but I felt she was wrong to do it. Matteo and Faye knew Enrico well enough to know he was nothing like the father who raised him. Their secrets were not ones to turn him against them, but the lying and locking him out of their lies definitely were. Enrico is a dominating and controlling man, but he is also a very caring man. He's shown the caring side of himself to his brother and Faye countless times. I honestly did not feel Faye deserved forgiveness. Satin Lies is a story that will trigger reactions from its readers; I certainly had some strong ones.
