Pubblicato in Italia con il titolo L’amica del cuore. La storia di tre donne, tre donne con segreti inconfessabili, segreti che potrebbero cambiare il loro futuro. Una storia piena di mistero che vi terrà incollati alle pagine!
At the center of this novel there are three women. Three strong and brave women. They love each other, but they also keep secrets from each other, secrets that are very dangerous.
Lisa is forty-years-old, she has a good job, a sixteen-year-old daughter, Ava, and a great friend in her colleague Marylin. She seems to have quite a dull life spending her time between home and work and worrying incessantly over Ava, but Lisa is hiding something. She is hiding a past from which she ran away, but now it seems it has caught up with her.
Ava is tired of her overbearing mother who showers her with texts and calls. She finds solace with her best friends, although there is something she hasn’t told them, because he is her secret. The man who befriended her on Facebook, the only person who really understands her, the person with whom she will run away.
Marylin seems to have the perfect job, the perfect home, and the perfect husband, but it’s all a lie, because her home is her nightmare and she can’t tell her best friend Lisa how she dreads to go home every night. She has to endure all on her own.
I read this novel in two seats. Completely captivating and well-written, it’s a story about abuse, obsession, deception, secrets, about friendship and the complicated relationship between mother and daughter. It’s full of twists and just when you think you have figured out you find out you were wrong. A must-read!
