Maggie marries Nico who has lost his first wife, Caitlin, to illness. She is unable to do anything right in the eyes of her mother in law, who holds Caitlin up as the epitome of a good wife. Nico's brother Massimo, and his wife Lara, have a son, Sandro.
The family dynamics are very complex and the book takes the reader through a roller coaster of emotions. It is so well written that you begin to think you are a part of the family. It is powerful, chilling, moving, thought provoking, and amazing.
I couldn't put it down and highly recommend it. ( )

This book wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. It had the plot to be something great, but definitely didn’t meet expectations. In my opinion it was a very dull wanna be suspense novel. The characters were very bland, I guess the best one is Maggie, the only one with somewhat of a back bone an hint of normalcy. I just found myself rolling my eyes a lot and just trying to get through it. Hard pass for me. Much better books out there. ( )

Had I known the subject of this novel I never would have read this book. That said if you have never experienced any form of domestic violence this novel may seem unimaginable and perhaps even surreal. There are many aspects or forms of domestic violence - Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Emotional Abuse & Intimidation, Economic Abuse, Control, Isolation, Using Male Privilege, and Verbal Abuse: Coercion, Threats, & Blame.

This is a gripping, heart-wrenching, emotional journey sharing the marriages of two (2) brothers and their wives. It is a vivid portrayal of the truth that some women experience. Do not judge their reactions but utilize the story to visualize, internalize, and understand so that you can be open to the signs of abuse. If someone you know needs help to escape any type of abusive situation, please understand their silence. You can find a private moment to give them a telephone number for the national or a local abusive hotline and encourage them to call. Do not write the name of the hotline on the paper but just the telephone number. It will be easier for them to save the paper in a safe place.

For those that need help, please don't wait another moment. Advocates are available 24/7 at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) in more than 200 languages. All calls are free and confidential. For more resources including a link for "live chat" visit this website: https://www.thehotline.org/help/ ( )

This book follows two sister in laws, Lara and Maggie who are married to Italian brothers. Two very different women with a secret that connects them.

This book is a domestic tale about family life with a secret that does become clear. The tale is told alternate between Maggie and Lara. I did enjoy following Maggie with her wit and down to earth narrative. This for me made the book more fun at times made me smile at some of Maggie's remarks. I liked how the two women became friends of a sort and how their relationship developed.

I enjoyed the book but was expecting some big secret but that in itself wasn't that much, and could have been predicted. However I did enjoy the read and there was enough to hold my interest. ( )
