The First Wife

The First Wife by Jill Childs Book Summary

I moved closer to the little girl, afraid that our voices would be caught by the monitor.
‘What happened to you, Lucy? Can you tell me?’

When Sophie’s life falls apart, she accepts an invitation from a childhood friend, Caroline, to visit her family’s beautiful beach house, situated at the mouth of an isolated cove, miles from the nearest town. The silence is broken only by the rhythmic crash of the waves against the jagged black rocks below.

But when Sophie arrives, she finds her friend much changed. Caroline – who used to be so warm and confident – is secretive and on-edge, spending long, unexplained hours away from her family. And then there’s Caroline’s little daughter Lucy – who stopped speaking soon after they moved in. Caroline assures Sophie that it’s only a phase, but Sophie thinks Lucy looks a little uncared for, a little afraid…

Then one night Sophie is woken by a scream and runs to find Lucy, out of bed and at the attic window, staring in terror at the view below. When Sophie goes to look, her blood runs cold…

What secrets hide behind closed doors in this isolated house by the sea? A compelling domestic drama from the USA Today bestselling author of Gracie’s Secret. Perfect for fans of Big Little Lies and The Couple Next Door.

What readers are saying about The First Wife:
I loved this book! From the moment I started, I couldn't stop reading it… The author did an amazing job… Kept me guessing until the very end… I loved it!’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
‘The First Wife is a stunning page-turner I did not want to put down… The ending is so twisted and fascinating... Just WOW! Unbelievably fantastic read. This is the best book I’ve read so far in 2020. Worth more than 5 stars to me.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars

‘What an amazing book by Jill Childs… This story had me hooked from the first chapter and I read it practically in one sitting!... I never saw the twist at the end coming! I cannot wait to recommend this book to all!’ NetGalley reviewer

The story draws you in from page one and as soon as the two friends are reunited, it's clear that it's a far from happy household… The writing is both descriptive and atmospheric and just as you think you have the whole thing worked out, there's a totally unexpected twist which I didn't see coming. A great read and highly recommended - in fact if I could give it more than five stars I would!Jo Lambert Books Blog, 5 stars

- Great gothic mystery5 star

A great gothic mystery that builds slowly and while the conclusion is somewhat predictable, the journey there is no less entertaining and enjoyable! Great vacation read!

- Good book intriguing story line4 star

I loved until the last couple pages where the mother’s writing to her daughter. Don’t want to be a spoiler but a mother would never write to her daughter like that about her death.

- The first wife5 star

I knew by the title I’d enjoy this, no matter what the story was! And hearing what others said “you won’t be able to put it down!” I got quite intrigued. I think I figured it out by the time the heroine did, and I felt pretty good about that. Very unique story actually. It kept me reading!
