The Wronged Sons by John Marrs

the wronged sonsBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review.

What would you do if the person you loved suddenly vanished into thin air?
Catherine’s cosy life as a housewife and mum-of-three is quickly thrown into disarray when husband Simon disappears without explanation.
She is convinced he hasn’t left by choice as confusion and spiraling debts threaten to tear her family apart.
Meanwhile Simon has begun a carefree new life travelling the world. And he’s determined not to disclose his past to all he meets, even if it means resorting to extreme and violent measures.
But why did he leave?
Catherine only gets her answer 25 years later when Simon suddenly reappears on her doorstep.
During their furious final confrontation, they discover the secrets, lies and misunderstandings that tore them apart, and then brought them face-to-face one last time.

My review.

I might be one of the few who didn´t go wow when I read this book, I found it too jumpy, from different times and places. It was written in the first person, which I don´t mind, but each chapter I read I was wondering who it was, even though the chapter title was clear, I didn´t find it clear. Each chapter goes from either Simon & Catherine, who are the two main characters in the novel.

I like the story as such, after all I did finish the book and I did enjoy the ending. It surprised me and I enjoyed that. There are plenty of twists and turns, there are a few dark moments which were great. It is a quick and easy read. Catherine was a very strong character and was great to read how she coped.
