#OurHouse by #LouiseCandlish
This book. If they don’t make a film of it, it would be a drastic oversight on the part of filmmakers everywhere.
Our main characters are Fiona (Fi, for short) Lawson and her philandering husband Bram (short for Abraham). It’s no secret that Bram is a multiple cheater. Fiona makes the decision to split from him, and that’s when things get interesting.
The two decide to share their house, so their sons’ lives are not disrupted by the split. In a trendy choice called birds’ nesting, Fi and Bram will each live at the house on a set schedule, the other times to be spent in an apartment rented so that the rotating days and nights will work. The boys will remain in the main home at all times.
The whole thing comes crashing down when Fi arrives at the house a day early and discovers that it is no longer her home. Bram has betrayed her in a terrifying way.
The rest of the book is filled with so many twists and turns that you’ll get whiplash. I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It rapidly became one of my all-time favorite reads.
