As I stood at my own birthday party, listening to my husband’s speech about me, I could no longer silence the thought that had started as a low-level hum five years ago and built until I could no longer ignore it… did I want to leave him?
Steph has spent decades building a family with her husband Mal, and putting that family first. She is the glue that holds them all together and she has convinced herself that she’s been happy… most of the time. But as she stands at her birthday party watching her husband talking about a wonderful marriage she doesn’t fully recognise, the doubts that she has been pushing down for so long begin to grow…
After the party, as Steph tries to gather her courage to leave Mal, she receives a letter from her old friend Evie. Steph hasn’t spoken to Evie since a sunny weekend on a holiday beach twenty years earlier, when the two friends said things to each other that could never be unsaid. And now, Evie is seeking a reunion and a way to repair the friendship. But this reunion threatens to reveal a secret that could destroy two families.
Other People’s Marriages is an absolutely unputdownable and heartbreaking read about the lies we tell to keep our loved ones close. Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Liane Moriarty and Diane Chamberlain.

I loved this book! I laughed and cried. I am in my early 60’s and hope that my best friends are always with me, through the good and the bad
This was my first Kerry Fisher book- I’m so happy I found a new author to put on my “favorites” list. The family situations were relatable and sometimes touching, and sometimes humorous! It was the kind of book that brought tears to my eyes, and also made me laugh out loud. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books about friendships, family dynamics, and is just looking for a warm and touching read. I also loved this author’s style of writing! Great read 👍.
What a wonderful real life story, there’s so much love and hope and friendship in this book! Excellent read, loved it and recommended it to friends already!
