Other People's Marriages Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Other People’s Marriages is an absolutely pause-resisting and heart-breaking listen about the lies we tell to keep our loved ones close, from best-selling author Kerry Fisher.
Steph has spent decades building a family with her husband, Mal, and putting their family first. She is the glue that holds them all together, and she has convinced herself that she’s been happy...most of the time. But as she stands at her birthday party watching her husband talking about a wonderful marriage she doesn’t fully recognise, the doubts that she has been pushing down for so long begin to grow....
After the party, as Steph tries to gather her courage to leave Mal, she receives a letter from her old friend, Evie. Steph hasn’t spoken to Evie since a sunny weekend on a holiday beach 20 years earlier, when the two friends said things to each other that could never be unsaid. And now, Evie is seeking a reunion and a way to repair the friendship. But this reunion threatens to reveal a secret that could destroy two families.

The story is about marriages and what makes and breaks them or holds them together. But it is also about friendships, the decisions friends make to protect each other, and sometimes having to decide where a line is or at what point someone might have crossed it. And what is forgivable.
I really liked Stepha, Teresa and Evie, and the honesty of feelings and emotions that each woman has and which I would say most women can relate to. And I also really liked that a good part of the book takes place when the three friends are in their 60's so that we see how individual life events have altered their perspectives and objectivity.
I love Kerry Fisher's books but this one has jumped to be my new favourite.

What I always love about Fisher’s books is the depth and complexity of her portrayal of female friendships. This author writes with pinpoint accuracy about truly relatable women.
I particularly loved the way the three women in this book, especially Steph, grew in self awareness, acknowledging their faults in later years, as advancing age allowed for a more nuanced understanding of themselves in relation to the people around them.
It’s a cracking story. The writing is beautiful, so full of warmth and humour. I love, love, loved this book. Highly recommend!
I really recommend this book. I loved every minute of reading it.
Steph, Evie and Teresa form a strong bond when their sons are toddlers, but thirteen years later a long weekend away turns sour, creating waves that will be felt decades later. The characters partake in a fair bit of introspection, but then that is what this novel is about, searching the past trying to figure out how best to go forwards. One for fans of Diane Chamberlain, Liane Moriarty and Charity Norman.
