I received a free ebook of this title, The Forgotten Woman by Angela Marsons, from NetGalley in return for a fair review.
This is gripping, tension filled story outlining the lives of two very different women. Fran, a successful lawyer, from a high achieving family and Kit, a former child prostitute. Their lives intersect at an AA meeting. From there the stories unfold, Fran’s past and Kit’s, two women who should have nothing in common, nothing to build a friendship on and yet they do. There are tension filled moments, secrets uncovered and demons faced. The book discusses dark issues including child prostitution, drug and alcohol abuse, rape, and death of a child.
I particularly liked the resolution of Kit’s story, as it was not what would be expected. I read this through in one sitting, it is a compelling read. I would recommend this to readers of general fiction who like their reads dark.
