50 Book Challenge: #27 Hidden

What kobo.com says:

While walking home from work one evening, Jeff Manning is struck by a car and killed. Not one but two women fall to pieces at the news: his wife, Claire, and his co-worker Tish. Reeling from her loss, Claire must comfort her grieving son and contend with funeral arrangements, well-meaning family members and the arrival of Jeff’s estranged brother-her ex-boyfriend-Tim.

With Tish’s co-workers in the dark about her connection to Jeff outside the workplace, she volunteers to attend the funeral on the company’s behalf, but only she knows the true risk of inserting herself into the wreckage of Jeff’s life. Told through the three voices of Jeff, Tish and Claire, Hidden explores the complexity of relationships, our personal choices and the responsibilities we have to the ones we love.


What I say: I didn’t love love this book because it deals with infidelities and the complexity of marriage but I will say I was riveted to the pages. I enjoyed the style of writing in the shape of three different character voices. I loved the character development right down to the children in the story and it was a great page turner. I can’t say I enjoyed the uncomfortable feeling that it caused as it delved into the issues of infidelity and whether we are better off “not knowing”.
