Summary

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.

Brilliant Author

I have read everything Kerry Fisher has written and her writing has yet to disappoint me. What I love is her stories are never the usual Woman meets a man, eventually fall in love and live happily ever after. I am bored of that cliche most novelist rely on. Kerry’s stories have depth and her observations about life and quite often death are spot on every time. If you have life experience you will appreciate that this author obviously has too. Narration spot on. Great book from start to finish.

Excellent audio book

This book is such a great study of relationships and how they affect our behaviour. It’s witty and well written with laugh-out-loud moments. I really engaged with the characters and loved their friendship group. Can’t wait for the next book!

Such a great book

It is incredible how the characters with their thoughts and feelings say and think the same as most of us over the years. Such a clever writer. I feel like noting down some of the remarks as it is full of wisdom and I wish I could have known how to answer friends with more care in the past. How people react with one another is spot on.
Well done.

Cracking listen!

Had to pay attention initially so I got the partner pairings and children right but after that I flew through the book - beautifully written and I felt I could relate to the characters in some way or another!

Well done Kerry!!

Character Driven

I enjoy books like this so much. It is more about the characters than a plot. Actually the characters and their relationships ARE the plot. I also enjoyed reading about these women and their relationships at different points in their lives. Overall, I really enjoyed this book!

So good!

I loved this book so much! I was all 3 women at different points. I could NOT take the AirPods out! I work and I am raising 2 Grandchildren so that tells the tale right there. I truely felt every emotion these women had and shared. For 50 and above healing and perseverance and 50 and below prevention and or not waiting to long to make changes or get out!
It was a random pick but something drew me to this book. I’m so thankful it did! I am buying the actual book and hi lighting ALL the emotions it sparked in me. Well done Kerry Fisher. I will be listening or reading all your books! 🙌🏻

I almost gave up …

This is a depressing book about dysfunctional marriages and betrayal between friends and that’s why I almost returned it but something kept me going and I’m ultimately glad I did. I was glad because I was once in the same situation with a friend who’s husband screwed around on her … I told her and wound up regretting it.

Enjoyed following the journey of three life-long f

I usually read psychological thrillers so this was a refreshing change and I really enjoyed it. The story of three women -- each different from one another, each with big differences in their marriages -- starting when they are young and following through life's ups and downs. Anyone who has friendships like those in this book are very fortunate.

This author just has a way to get you really involved in her characters. The depth of their personalities makes it seem so real. The narrator is great as well.

Couldn’t stop listening

I loved it and just couldn’t stop listening. All of the characters and stories were relatable. I found the friendships warming and it has me looking forward to the years to come as I work through the now which is just a piece of my story.
