Woman finds out that her life has been a lie

In Her Wake - Amanda Jennings

 

This work of women's fiction (with an element of crime fiction) tells us about Bella discovering that her childhood was a lie and on a road of discovery to find out the truth behind her origins. There are many twists and revelations along the way and she goes from being a woman who had always been controlled by others (parents, husband) to a more independent one.

Engaging novel which carries the reader along Bella's trip and develops the characters well although I found that the depiction of the husband a little extreme (perhaps because I'm a man!). This is enjoyable and worthy of being read by a wide readership.
