Emotional drama regarding secrets

The Dilemma: A Novel

By: B. A. Paris

Rating: 4 of 5

When I first picked up this book, I thought it would a suspenseful mystery as were the other books I have read by this author. It turned out that was not the case.

The story is about secrets which are being kept between a husband and wife which have huge impacts upon their family. It takes an awful tragedy to get this two to consider sharing with one another.

The story is told from alternating points of view, husband and wife. I didn’t have trouble keeping track of the narrator even when the story went back and forwards in time.

While it wasn’t what I expected, it was still a very good book. It reminded me that a burden shared, is a burden halved. I was left wondering what the future might have been, if only these two individuals had been willing to share their thoughts, issues and problems throughout their married life.

I look forward to reading more by this versatile author in the future.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
