warning - caution about Suicide
  Trekeive | Apr 17, 2021 |
Sophie’s flight to NYC has been diverted to Newfoundland. She is not very happy about it…at all. She must get to NYC for an interview. However, this diversion takes her on a quest to learn more about her family history and to possibly discover love in the process.

I enjoyed the setting on this one. You do not read too many books set in Newfoundland. I also loved the 9/11 segment. But, the WWII part was a little boring and drawn out. The story comes together with quite a few twists and turns. But, there were sections which I struggled with. Now…this could be more about me than the author. I have read so many WWII books lately. I could just be ready for something new.

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

Ellie is swept off her feet by Thomas, a soldier from the Newfoundland regiment, during World War II in Norwich, England. Thomas turns Ellie's life upside down with a whirlwind romance and quick elopement before he is sent off to war. Ellie doesn't receive another letter from Thomas until she learns that he has been injured and is now back home in Newfoundland recovering. Ellie packs up to leave the only home she has ever known with her newborn son, Emmett to forge a life in a new land with a man she barely knows.

September 11, 2001- Sophie Parry leaves London for New York. She is interviewing for her big break at an architecture firm. Unexpectedly, her plane is routed to the nearest airport in Newfoundland. Stuck in a small town and unable to reach her interview. Sophie seeks out her mother's sister that her family has long been estranged from. Sophie's Aunt Ellie welcomes her with open arms and introduces her to a family she never knew.

The English Wife is a multi-faceted historical fiction drama with dual timelines, intrigue, secrets and lies. I love a good dual-timeline and this one delivered. I loved that both Ellie and Sophie were tough, determined and willing to go against the grain. The writing was able to weave together Ellie's story in the 1940's along with her sister Dottie, her former fiance George and Thomas along with Ellie and Sophie in 2001 and 2011 in a way that I could easily follow. It was very interesting to see Ellie in the light of the 1940's and the 2000's; she was still very much herself, but different in many ways. Sophie was a surprising character, from the very beginning I knew that she had a difficult decision to make between sealing her career and destroying the family and town that she has just found. This created tension right from the beginning that carried throughout the story. As things progressed, secrets came out that changed my perspective as well as the characters. I really wish people would have stopped messing with Ellie's life; however, she seemed to come out ok in the end. In addition, I enjoyed Sam and Becca's characters as well as the town of Tippy's Tickle. I could imagine the houses, the seascapes and the songs of the whales singing.

This book was received for free in return for an honest review. ( )

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The English Wife by Adrienne Chinn is a sweeping historical fiction novel with strong romantic elements. The story covers the time from 1940 to 2011 and Is mainly the story of Ellie Burgess a young art student in Norwich England who during the war meets a soldier from Newfoundland named Thomas Parsons with whom she falls in love, and after the war journeys to an isolated fishing village in Newfoundland as a bride and young mother. The chapters move between the present and the past and tell the stories of Ellie’s estranged sister Dottie, George Parry, her former fiancé, and Sophie Parry, her niece who arrives in Tippy’s Tickle Newfoundland after her plane is forced to land at Gander on September 11, 2001. The story encompasses love of all sorts, the sacrifices we make for those we love and how secrets and lies weave a web of bitterness that can take generations to heal.
I enjoyed this book and do recommend it. Publishing Date: June 23, 2020 #TheEnglishWife #AdrienneChinn #HarperCollinsUK #OneMoreChapter #bookstagram #historicalfiction ( )

A charming story of one family throughout the 20th century whose decisions, deceits, and struggles defines who they are and who they were to each other. A self-discovery on one hand, for more than one character, and a historical account of the world through the family’s eyes on the other. I found myself invested in the characters, rooting for some, annoyed with others, as Chinn painted such a clear picture of them. The plot jumps through time on different threads but everything comes together as it should. I truly enjoyed this one.
