    An emotional read.

    When a new couple moves in next door to Shelley, the wife, Lara wants to befriend her. Lara is pregnant and Shelley immediately feels deep pangs of loss. She is still grieving the fact that her husband Greg has left her. What is more is that she is hiding something special away, a baby blanket among the things. Lara all but barges into Shelley's life. Before she knows it, Lara is helping her to declutter her home, with a book she read giving both women direction. Meanwhile, Shelley begins to notice things about Lara, even wondering about the state of her marriage. Their friendship grows closer, yet each woman is keeping secrets from the other. The Forgotten Wife is a very good story that hits hard. I found a kinship with each woman and their losses. As we read the book, we are getting the story delivered in both of their perspectives. It is easy to see how two strangers could easily become so close. Grab some tissues, because they will definitely be needed. Despite the tears, the story ended with hope, so this delivered a very good balance. This is my second book by Emma Robinson and I highly recommend it. She writes deeply emotional stories that will stay with the reader for a very long time. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

    3.5 Stars

    Although I thought the beginning was a little slow moving, this book is an easy read where you get lost in the lives of two women. This story is about Shelley and Lara who take the steps to "find the joy" and become fast friends while doing so. Throw together an overprotective husband, death, miscarriages and past hurts and Emma Robinson hands you a book that will keep you turning pages with a story that will stay with you. Ms. Robinson has written a beautiful story with wonderful, real, and likable characters whose lives are filled with reflection, growth, determination, humor, love, and acceptance. I enjoyed witnessing Shelley's and Lara's transformation into their new normal.

    Grief and Growth, Love and Loss

    Grief and Growth, Love and Loss This is a 2 hanky drama of grief, growth, love, and loss. The story moves so quickly that I didn't want to put the book down. Everything about the story makes it painfully real. There is not one bit the makes you realize that this is a work of fiction. I highly recommend this book to the lovers of strong Women's Literature. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    Heartbreaking story

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2 What a heartbreaking but also uplifting read! "Some friendships are short, only lasting while you have circumstances in common......other friendships last longer - you make a real connection. But there are some friends who are there for the long haul" This is a story about love and lost. A story about two broken women both broken in their own way. Its a story about trying to survive from 1 day to the other; of never giving up and of miracles. It is beautifully written with so much empathy and it makes you feel thankful for what you have in life
