Two women a world apartA secret waiting to be discovered‘An emotive and engaging read’ Rosanna Ley‘Rich evocative and utterly immersive this beautifully written book swept me away’ Jenny Ashcroft‘Evocative sensual and authentic’ Jane JohnsonVE Day 1945 As victory bells ring out across the country war bride Ellie Burgess’ happiness is overshadowed by grief Her charismatic Newfoundlander husband Thomas is still missing in action Until a letter arrives explaining Thomas is back at home on the other side of the Atlantic recovering from his injuriesTravelling to a distant country to live with a man she barely knows is the bravest thing Ellie has ever had to do But noth The English Wife written by a new author to this reader is a lovely historical romance The story transitioned a bit slow for me in the beginning but gradually picked up pace and my attention The only drawback that irritated me a bit was the prgression of the story toggling back and forth through time periods which had me confused at times The scenic locations of this story is during WWII and the Year 2001 where if you are the reader you are getting a view of both eras in history that as I ve mentioned can be sometimes confusingI thought the characters were interesting and the different settings were depicted well as some historicals do if the are well written in the book This story did not excite me as much as I thought it would however is was just average to this readerThank you Netgalley and Harper Collins for this ARC in exchange for my fair and honest review Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own3 Stars

summary Ú eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Adrienne Chinn

E and utterly immersive this beautifully written book swept me away’ Jenny Ashcroft“An epic tale of family tragedy love I highly recommend this book” Books Wine Cats 5“The sense of suspense makes this story a page turner Highly recommend this book especially if you’re looking for a WWII era book without all of the historical stuff” To Read is to Breathe 5“I couldn’t put it down It was not your typical historical novel I think that’s what I loved about it Great book” Dabbookclub 4“A book that drew me in from the first pages The characters come alive they’re so well written Fans of historic fiction will love this story An author to follow” Consumer review The English Wife by Adrienne Chinn is a historical romance that is told from multiple points of view I enjoyed the authors descriptions of Newfoundland and the remote town of Tippy s Tickle The country sounded rugged remote and beautiful I could just imagine how cold it was living by the water from the author s words Ellie Sophie Sam Dottie Becca Florie George and Thomas are just a few of the characters in the story The POV originally alternates between Sophie and Ellie but it branches out into the other characters along the way In addition to the various POVs the time period changes The story begins in February of 1946 with Ellie sailing to Newfoundland We also have Sophie in September of 2011 getting ready to return to the small inlet of Tippy s Tickle on business It then goes back to 1940 moving forward through the war years and 2001 The chapters are short which leads to a choppy flow I would just get into Ellie s story and then I am back to Sophie It is a wonder I did not get whiplash It leads to a confusing story It felt like the author wrote two different stories and then took pieces from each to make into one book I would put my book down and come back to it utterly lost I had to backtrack to figure out which character was speaking and where I was in time The story lacked continuity Sophie and Ellie s stories come together in the end with an expected conclusion Secrets get revealed but they can be discerned before they are revealed I was not a fan of Emmett Parsons Ellie s son He was an odd duck I wish the author had taken the time to establish Ellie and Sophie in the beginning They needed to be fleshed out and given life While I liked Ellie Sophie did not appeal to me I felt that most of the characters were flat I was also put off by the amount of foul language just in the first couple of chapters it is in the rest of the book as well just not so much at once I really wanted to like The English Wife but it just did not work for me
