BOOK REVIEW THE WIDOW BY FIONA BARTON

We’ve all seen him: the man – the monster – staring from the front page of every newspaper, accused of a terrible crime.

But what about her: the woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs – the wife who stands by him?

Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming.

Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil.

But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.

Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows.

Firstly a big thanks to Ben for sending me a copy to review .Let me tell you now this is going to be HUGE in 2016 .

I was hooked and a day on this book has stayed with me ,I felt it got right under my skin and into my thoughts .

A very clever and original concept seeing the view of someone other than the criminal and victim .

It is a story that unravels with each page exceeding your expectations and leaving you wanting more .

Reading the varied perspectives and also from different times added to the depth ,and it was done so in a way that wasn’t confusing .

Some parts do make for disturbing reading especially as a mum but wasn’t overly done .

I feel with this book often it was what was left unsaid that added to the chill .

A gripping read that ticks all the boxes for me in the genre of psychological thrillers .

I genuinely cant wait to read to read more from this author and wish her every success with this book which I believe will be a bestseller .

2015 all eyes were on The girl on the train ,2016 the focus is diverted to another quiet character ….THE WIDOW .
