The Divorce by Victoria Jenkins – Book Review

The Divorce by Victoria Jenkins – Book Review



They seemed like any other couple.

Josh and Lydia Green. A doctor, and a stay-at-home mother. They met at a party, which led to a dinner, which led to a happy and comfortable life together. They married young, and had children earlier than planned.

Their marriage seemed like any other marriage

They have their moments, of course – who doesn’t? With Josh working longer hours in the hospital, and Lydia feeling increasingly isolated at home, the strain is starting to show. They don’t talk as much as they used to.

But they have a secret like no other.

Not every wife is as scared as Lydia.

Not every husband is hiding as much as Josh.

Not everything you think about them is true.

And this book contains a twist like no other…

The Divorce is an absolutely unputdownable psychological thriller which will have you hooked until the final incredible twist. Perfect for everyone who loved Gone Girl, The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us.



This is a subtle, clever thriller about how we each see different meanings in the same things….

Karen is a psychologist and her clients, Josh and Lydia come to her to seek help with their marital issues…..this interaction between Karen and her clients is the bulk of the story, it also brings her own memories to the fore…how memories as a child may not have the same interpretation as an adult…

As Josh and Lydia’s sessions progress, more and more about their lives and their issues are discussed, reminding Karen of her own marriages, the abuse she endured and a tragedy….is this a coincidence or is there more to Josh and Lydia? Much more!

A quick read with a touch of a thriller and a twist you won’t see coming..
