The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a really remarkable memorable read.
Anyone that loves a family drama book, family dysfunctional or just a plain ole moving gut wrenching moments should read this book, its full of emotions.
There are still some houses that home 2 families, one up, one down and of course you live in very close proximity of each other which isn't always easy. As we see in this case.
Both the husbands are brothers. They own a company too which means even more proximity.
What about they're wives?
Yes they are friends and the children of course from both families, have always someone to play with. Cousins growing up together everyone's dream.
Or is it.
As with all families there are tensions, arguments, decisions to be made (just to mention a few) but imagine this in a close full on proximity. It would escalate ten fold.
And not always for the good.
There are emotions scenes with a huge full on mood swarm! The moodiness can someone get to you, but you need to remember, its a very close proximity they are living in.
I was thinking of Big Brother, have you watched it?
Its OK at the start its all nice. Polite. Pleasant. Reasonable then......WHAM.
The back stabbing begins, the fits, the emotional highs and lows the fights.
Nowhere to go to be on your own, always someone poking their nose in each others business.
There is a huge secret within this house which makes it even more volatile.
Wait until that surfaces!
This is a well written book, doesn't take long to read and you get into is fairly quickly.
*My thanks to St. Martin's Press via Net Galley for my copy* and of course, to the author.
