Review by Suze
Being with her family makes Rosie happy. She has everything she wants, two beautiful daughters, a husband she adores, a great best friend, parents-in-law she's close to and a cozy house in a seaside town. She thinks her life is perfect, but apparently she's missed something vital. The signs were there, but she didn't pick up on them. All of a sudden Phil is moving in with another woman, someone he's been seeing for quite some time. Rosie is crushed and while she's grieving she slowly loses everything she holds dear. Nothing feels right anymore and the situation only seems to get worse. Will she be able to bounce back and move on eventually?
My Husband's Wife is a heartbreaking story. Rosie is such a happy and cheerful person who is content with what she has an who deeply loves her husband and daughters. Her life is exactly the way she wants it to be. It was so sad to watch it being taken away from her. I shed plenty of tears while reading this book, as some of the scenes are painful to read. I'm always impressed when I feel so many different things when I'm reading a novel, which is where the beauty of this story lies for me.
Amanda Prowse always writes books that are deeply moving. Rosie is wonderful. She's sweet, caring and easy to like. She's an excellent mother and she's always making sure that her daughters feel loved. She has her bad moments and sheds plenty of tears, but she's strong. I love how Amanda Prowse describes unconditional love, finding the one and deep affection. She knows how to write about emotion and that's what makes her stories so good.
My Husband's Wife is a gripping book that kept me glued to my seat from the start, I couldn't put it down. It's a story that has a great number of layers and is deep on many different levels. Amanda Prowse writes about sensitive topics in a caring and empathetic way. She thoroughly explores the hearts and souls of her characters and makes sure that the reader will get to know them through and through. Reading their stories is like being inside their minds. I love that about her work. I've read several of her books and enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend this amazing novel as well, it's another brilliant Amanda Prowse story.
