The Gallery of Vanished Husbands by Natasha Solomans. Review.
This story is set in England over many years and the main character of the story is a woman called Juliet Montague. Juliet is a mother and wife although her husband has now vanished and has left her in an uncertain position and surrounded by her tightly knit Jewish community. I felt incredibly sorry for Juliet, she is trying to get through a difficult time with people talking behind her back as she tries to raise and protect her children and yet not lose herself amongst everything that is happening. Reading the book I felt almost claustrophobic sometimes , Juliet was stuck in a place in her life where she could not move on and you often feel her helplessness. During all this she finds solace in an unexpected place and this would give her comfort and joy throughout her life .Juliet's act of rebellion was a shining moment in the book where we really see Juliet the woman, her guts and gumption , and this made her a terrific heroine and very inspiring. I recommend this to everyone who likes a book with a bit of a mystery.
I received this book for review from the lovely folks over at Lovereading.co.uk.
This book will be published in June 2014 and will be available on Lovereading.co.uk then , and at all other good bookstores.
