The Younger Wife by Sally Hepworth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The universe is based on a fair exchange. What you give you will get.
The heart wants what it wants, and Heather’s heart wants Stephen. Heather and Stephen had an unusual courtship. But after they confessed to mutual feelings, their relationship quickly led to the walk down an aisle. As Heather’s life began to change, together with a “happy ending” she began to experience a very strange change in herself.
The story is told by three characters: Heather, the younger fiance, and two sisters Tully and Rachel. All three are suffering from childhood traumas, and all three are dealing with their struggles on their own. I liked the fact that the novel was told from three different points of view, each, focusing on Stephen from a different direction. I give this novel four stars for its great plot, wonderful background on three characters. The twist was not shocking, but I’ve enjoyed it as the evil personage met the rightful punishment. This book is a fast, enjoyable, and easy read, without major suspense. Thank you, NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
