The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd is a contemporary psychological thriller that will mess with your mind as truth and lies merge. Goodness and evil blur as the reader the reader tries to work out what really happened.
The novel has misfits thrown together because the world doesn’t seem to want them.
There is the theme of abuse in childhood. The sins of the fathers seem to have far reaching effects.
Evil has a face. The reader just has to work out whose face it is.
Fear and curiosity are motivating forces. Sometimes fear seems mesmerising. The mind is a powerful force. It will lead us to believe things that are not necessarily true. Our mind can lead us where we do not really want to go.
The Innocent Wife was gripping. I read with heart racing. I definitely developed trust issues, along with the characters as I read on.
A compulsive read that you do not want to read alone.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
