A New Author for me
APPLE TREE YARD...
is a totally different story, showing the talent of Louise Doughty.
Yvonne Carmichael is fifty two years old, married with two grown children. Yvonne and her husband, Guy, have a comfortable marriage, both with demanding jobs that seem to fulfil their lives. Then, suddenly, she finds herself in a quandary -- married, having a hot and lustful affair, falling into a deep web of deception, half-truths, full lies.
A middle-class woman with a comfortable middle-class life. That is how she likes it - until she is seduced by this enigmatic man who likes sex in risky places and whom she is incapable of resisting. She knows it isn’t forever, that to him she is just another woman in a long line of women, but her feelings for him begin to develop into something more, although the excitement, the ability to step out of her safe life, to be someone else if even for a few minutes, is bewitching. Then something brutal and unimaginable happens and how these lovers deal with it threatens to unmask their secret and destroy their lives.
This story gripped me and I couldn't put it down, I would be very surprised if you didn't find it worth reading.
I have ordered her other books from the library, and can't wait to read those too.
What would I do without books, what about you?
