Don’t Miss This Extraordinary Novel by Kerry Fisher. The Secret Child, Coming 11/29/17. I Absolutely Loved It!

 

The Secret Child is a powerful and emotionally charged character-driven novel. The story is heartbreaking and well as touching. I didn’t want to put the book down, for even a moment. And, this superbly written story stayed with me, long after I turned the last page.

Susie counted herself lucky to be married to Danny, even though as a military man, he was gone for long stretches of time. When Danny was home, though, he was a kind, loving and devoted husband. And, that was exactly why Susie couldn’t confess her infidelity to him. To make matters worse and add to her list of sins, Susie had given her son away. So every time Susie witnessed Danny with their grandson or her friend Jeanie’s son, her gut would wrench. And each time her insides twisted with guilt, Susie withdrew more into herself.

The carefree, beautiful wife Danny had left with their daughter before deploying overseas, was not the same women he came back to. Susie had become moody, withdrawn and depressed and Danny had no idea why. He tried everything he could think of to make Susie happy, without success. Danny even left the Navy and took a factory job, which he despised, just to be home more. But, Susie’s guilt over giving away her son and now losing her daughter’s affection, was tearing her up inside and stealing the very life out of her. It would be Susie’s estranged daughter, of all people, who would be the one to step-up, comfort her mother, and help her to heal.

The Secret Child is an unforgettable, moving novel. The characters are well-developed and alive. I felt their pain, their brokenness, their trials and their forgiveness. Truly a beautiful story, so well-written that even days later, I was still thinking about it. This is an outstanding novel and one that I will read again and again. Kerry Fisher is fast becoming a favorite author of mine. I will definitely be reading her next book.

Thank you, Bookouture and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I absolutely loved it!

A New and Outstanding Gripping Novel by Kerry Fisher!

 I Absolutely Loved This Book. Don’t Miss It!

The Silent Wife is a heart wrenching and gripping tale. I was hooked from the very first page. Kerry Fisher’s brilliant writing talent is showcased beautifully in this book. There are no filler pages. Each sentence moves the story forward. It’s exceedingly evident that every word in this book was thoroughly thought out and carefully placed, for maximum effect. Although this book is sure to, wreck havoc with your emotions, it will also warm your heart and make you laugh.

Maggie Parker came to the classy Farinelli family from a poor drug-infested section of town. She was the first in three generations of Parker women to nab a husband. Nico Farinelli wasn’t just any guy, though, he was a successful, kind, and handsome man. Nico loved Maggie’s sincere, honest, full-of-life manner. Anna, the matriarch of the Farinelli family, however, was nauseated by the fact that the Parker’s, were infiltrating her perfect Italian nest; especially Beryl, Maggie’s mother, a no-nonsense loving woman, with absolutely no filter.

Out of the two Farinelli brothers, Maggie’s husband, Nico was the quieter one. Massimo was a larger-than-life, center of the universe, charismatic, charmer type of guy. He was also his mother’s favorite. From the outside, the Farinelli’s appeared to be the perfect loving family. Maggie, however, knew that to be a falsehood. She accidentally discovered a terrible secret, one so awful that if it were ever exposed, would tear the Farinelli family apart. She struggled to protect the people she loved, but secrets have a way of being unearthed at the worse possible moments.

I highly recommend The Silent Wife. It’s an extraordinarily well-written book with many witty one-liners, realistic dialogue, and complex characters. This is the second 5-star novel that I have read by this talented writer. I love finding new favorite authors. I’ll be reading Kerry Fisher’s next book for sure.

Thank you so much Bookouture, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

*After the Lie*by Kerry Fisher*5-stars

After the Lie

After The Lie is a compelling, cleverly written and engrossing story. Kerry Fisher crafts her emotionally charged, and thought-provoking novel with imperfect characters, witty dialogue, and oodles of British humor.

Forty-three-year-old Lydia Rushford’s life was out of control. She had become a madwoman, a person she hardly recognized. One of her secrets, a shameful one, which took place when she was thirteen-years-old and known as Sally Southport, was on the verge of being exposed.

For thirty years, Lydia had guarded her words. The only life she ever spoke of, was a fabricated one; not even her trustworthy, kindhearted husband, Mark, a man who would have won, husband of the year award, knew who she was. But, Lydia’s semi-comfortable life was about to crumble. Sean McAllister, the only man who knew of her secret, had shown up in her life. To Lydia’s horror, Sean and her husband Mark had become close friends. In desperation, Lydia confessed her secret to a male stranger, who ended up complicating her life, more than she could have ever imagined.

Unfortunately, history has a way of repeating itself; and lies, whether half-truths or omissions have a way of coming to the surface and spreading their poison.

I enjoyed reading this thoughtful and highly entertaining novel.

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
