The Silent Wife- Kerry Fisher


Lara and Maggie are both second wives to the Farinelli brothers. They are an Italian family with a strong mother who is feared by the two women.

Maggie has inherited a teenage stepdaughter who resents her and things are very fraught whilst they try to find a new family pathway. She is a bit envious of the love she sees between Lara and her husband- but are things what they seem beneath the surface?

This was a page turner- full of implied secrets, unravelling family lives, new family dynamics. Maggie’s mum is a refreshingly down to earth character who feels at ease wherever she is and is able to ignore any nose in the air moments.

The holiday to Italy is a wonderful part of the book and it’s interesting to see how the blended families manage a holiday together.
