Imagine you are about to get married and your fiancé’s crazy ex begins to show up, send letters and call to bug the heck out of you.
Imagine that you are the ex wife, doing all you can to end your ex husband’s new relationship.
Imagine being the husband, wishing that your ex would just leave you be.
As you read the book, you suddenly realize something….
Things are not always what they seem. I promise that as you read this your mind will latch on to one bendable truth, naturally but prepare for the twists!
The Wife Between Us centers around the theme of not always knowing who you marry. That fact alone is humbling enough and in reality, many of us experience this, however the authors made sure to keep us on one plane of thought while systematically, twisting our mind around in the middle of the book.
The secrets, the mystery, the psychological torture is only the tip of the iceberg and I can honestly say I was not ready for the many revelations.
At least two revelations, surprised me, but the biggest one of all towards the end shocked the mess out of me.
For those used to linear storytelling, however, do not fear but I do warn you. The true gem of this work lies not only in storytelling and pacing, but how the story is told. It may give you whiplash if you are not paying attention.
“We think we’ve entered into a union with another person when, in fact, we’ve formed a triangle with one point anchored by a silent but all seeing judge…” (from The Wife Between Us by Hendricks and Pekkanen, 2018)
All in all I highly- and I do mean highly recommend this book to you. If there is one you pick up this Winter, let it be The Wife Between Us.
