This was a really unusual book, dealing with some difficult subjects that could quite easily have been depressing yet the wonderful writing and charm that the author has created (as only the Irish can) makes it very moving and beautiful. Faith Hogan has written an outstanding book that had me absolutely riveted. Intricately weaved together, the lives of Grace, Evie, Annalise and Kasia change forever when Paul Starr – a famous Irish Cardiologist is killed in a car crash. Paul was once married to Evie, but then later married Grace who gave birth to his daughter, Delilah, but their relationship soured and he had two children with Annalise. As for Kasia, nobody knows quite what her ties with Paul involved but she has only the best words to say about him. In what starts as a complicated mess of lies, secrets and mistrust, soon sees unlikely friendships formed in this emotional and moving novel and as we get to connect with each of them, grow to like and feel for them. With many diverse characters, there wasn't one person I didn't like (surprisingly, not even Paul). My Husband's Wives is beautifully written in such a naturally warm style that you can't help but open your heart to them, as they did to each other. My Husband's Wives really is an outstanding debut from Faith Hogan and I highly recommend it. 5 Outstanding Stars….
