Synopsis

Strange Girls and Ordinary Women by Morgan McCarthy

They say you know instinctively who to trust. Alice is normal; she'd never do anything rash. But when she sees her husband one day with a younger girl, she knows at once that he's having an affair. And it must be stopped. Vic loves her friend Michael, more than he knows. He wants happiness, and thinks he's found it with the magnetic Estella. But Vic feels sure she can't be trusted - and she needs to make Michael see that too. They don't know Kaya; her life is tougher than they can imagine. But Kaya's a survivor, and she's determined to find a way out of her miserable world. Three women, three lives that come crashing together in this dark, lyrical and utterly enthralling story of warped perceptions, female intuition and 'the other woman'.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
