    One thought on “The Husband”

    1. I am a long time fan of Deirdre Purcell and loved her earlier work, I have found recent books to be a disappointing I read The Husband a few months ago and didn't enjoy if that much. I didn't like the main character Marian very much and Daniel's character wasn't that credible (more like a Mills and Boon protagonist). So much went wrong for Marian and she never seemed to possess any reflection about her choices and their impact on others. That said some of the supporting characters were very well [...]

    2. The overall feeling I got from this book was "meh" I didn't much like the main character and thought the assimilation of her into the Irish family after meeting her only a handful of times was unlikely at best. The story meandered a long without ever really getting going and I found myself wondering what was the point to it all. I glossed over the epilogue just wanting it to be finished so I could read something else. Have read and enjoyed other books by this author, bit unfortunately this one r [...]

    3. I think I was very generous with my 3 stars and should have given a 2 star rating. I found The Husband hard to read and it didn't hold my attention. In fact it was rather confusing at times as none of the characters got under my skin and it was hard to keep track of who was who. The conclusion was very abrupt and I was expecting more.

    4. Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read this book in return for my honest opinion.I thought this book sounded pretty good, but I had a hard time getting into it. It started out okay, but I really did not like the main character and I found the book longer than necessary. It was a disappointing read.

    5. Marian has led a fairly boring life - she has never had much interest in the opposite sex until she meets a doctor Peter and marries him - still there is no real passion in her life - she is happy but always has the feeling that there could be something more and then she meets Daniel!Suddenly her life is in technicolour and she realises what love and passion really mean - in a whirlwind romance she divorces Peter and marries Daniel but she barely knows him so what skeletons are about to come of [...]

    6. This book wasn't for me. I don't like cheating books, at all, no exceptions. The book starts with the woman living in Ireland and we learn that her husband(Daniel) is dead. The book is then written as though writing memoirs, recalling how we get to this point.The issue i had is that she is married when she meets Daniel and cheats on her husband before leaving him. Poor Henry is a lovely guy and she treats him badly After Daniel dies she discovers things about him that shake the whole basis on th [...]

    7. I am not a lover of cheating books and only tackled this book because it was one of my book group choices. In saying that, I was intrigued by the fact that it was set in both Chicago and in Ireland and Deirdre Purcell came highly recommended! Truthfully, I am annoyed that I invested that much time in this horrible book and do not recommend it to anyone else! It is certainly unpleasant for easy night time reading and I will go with my first gut reaction from now on!
