The Wife's Shadow: The most gripping and heartbreaking page turner you'll read this year

Cath Weeks

Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

From the author of Blind and Mothers, this is suspenseful, issue-led women's fiction about a woman whose past catches up with her, for fans of The Affair and Dr Foster.

'If you enjoyed BBC's Doctor Foster, then you will happily devour this novel about a woman hiding a dark past' Woman and Home

Every woman has a secret . . . From one of Elle magazine's 'authors to watch' comes a suspenseful and emotionally fraught novel about how little we really know the person we marry. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell and Susan Lewis.

Everyone admires Suzy. She has a gorgeous family, a beautiful home and a successful business. But Suzy hasn't always been in control. In her past lies a shadowy tale of fear and instability - a life that she once ran away from, and has hidden from ever since.

When Suzy starts being followed, she fears that her past may finally be catching up with her. And when she finds herself unable to keep her loved ones safe, she has to decide how far she'd be willing to go to protect them from her past. Even if it means sacrificing everything she knows and loves . . .
