The book begins with Maggie getting married to Nico Farinelli. She knows his mother Anna disapproves of her but she has fallen in love with him. After so many broken relationships, she has finally found a man she can count on and who thinks of her son Sam as family. Nico also has a daughter from his first marriage, Francesca. Maggie hopes to become a friend to her.
Lara is married to Massimo, Nico's brother and they have one child, Sandro. Lara's also the second wife. Massimo divorced Dawn when she refused to have children. Lara couldn't believe when Massimo started courting her and soon he makes her forget all her reservations but after the wedding everything changes.
There were so many things I like about the story. Lara and Maggie were both strong in their own way. They both had to deal with Nico and Massimo's mother Anna. She was not an easy person to like. She was always looking for ways to offend the "new wives". As the matriarch of the family, she made sure both sons lived in the same street as her. She even has a key to enter their homes uninvited.
Not only did Maggie have to deal with Anna but with her teenage step-daughter, Francesca who was trying very hard to make Maggie feel like an outsider. Lara's life was not any easier. Hers was a hotter hell.
These women were both so different but life brought them together. They both were dealing with secrets that could affect their whole family's dynamic. I rooted for both of them to make it.
The Silent Wife is a very entertaining tale full of emotion, heartache, complicated relationships, love and friendship. I would recommend it without reservation.
This is a hard novel to review without giving away any of the plot, but reading it with no expectation/foreknowledge is truly the best approach. I certainly hope Kerry is able to continue with her originality; the hardest thing to do in this particular genre. From the first page to the final page, this is a definite showstopper! Not only are the characters original but the various combination of events that occur throughout the entire book is mind-blowing. It's going to be hard to go back to the usual novel by numbers that often plagues books of this genre after this satisfying read. I highly recommend this novel, I think you'll fall in love with some of the characters, distain others, but you won't come away untouched. It was also easy to picture the different locales, which added to the enjoyment factor. Ms. Fisher has become one of my new favorite authors.
