"The Soulmate" by Sally Hepworth - Book Review @StMartinsPress @MacmillanUSA #TheSoulmate #BookReview @SallyHepworth

As Sally Hepworth readers know, she’s mastered the plot. There have been a number of in “Soulmate“, so in that regard, she writes true to kind.

In these pages, we’ve discovered the story of two {couples}.

Max and Amanda Cameron are a rich childless couple. When Amanda married Max, she had just one stipulation and that was constancy. When she discovered that Max had been untrue, she went to a well-known suicide spot referred to as “The Drop” on the Australian coast.

Protagonists Gabe and Pippa Gerard are the fortunately married dad and mom of two preschool women. They dwell in a home positioned on “The Drop”. Pippa is a lawyer and Gabe is now a “houseman”, though he has had a number of careers previously. Gabe has talked folks out of suicide many occasions since he moved into this home and he is even been featured within the newspaper for his efforts. When Gabe and Pippa see a girl exterior close to ‘The Drop’, Gabe tells Pippa to name the police and he goes exterior to do what he does finest…. speak about. However this time, Gabe fails and the girl plunges to her demise.

When the police later query Gabe, he’s not absolutely clear as to what actually occurred. Pippa trusts Gabe, however wonders why what he instructed the police would not match what she noticed… Regardless of working as a lawyer, she helps Gabe’s story and lies to the police. Gabe is her soul mate in any case…

I could not actually like both couple depicted. Perhaps I wasn’t lower out for this? Though, to be frank, the truth that I do not care a lot about them made me much less invested in what occurred to them, spoiling my enjoyment of the story. I loved the lifeless girl’s story as a result of it gave an attention-grabbing slant to the plot.

The way in which these two {couples} join was difficult and intriguing. I will not disclose the how and why in order to not spoil the studying expertise for potential readers.

The novel asks questions May even the strongest, most loving marriage face up to secrets and techniques and lies? AND Can anybody ever REALLY KNOW anybody else? It additionally touches on the themes of constancy, psychological sickness, ruthless enterprise practices, and loyalty.
