The Most Difficult Thing by Charlotte Philby

The Most Difficult Thing by Charlotte Philby
Publisher: Harper Collins UK
Release date: 11 June 2019
Back cover blurb: On the surface, Anna Witherall personifies everything the aspirational magazine she works for represents. Married to her university boyfriend David, she has a beautiful home and gorgeous three-year-old twin daughters, Stella and Rose. But beneath the veneer of success and happiness, Anna is hiding a dark secret, one that threatens to unravel everything she has worked so hard to create. As Anna finds herself drawn into the dark and highly controlled world of secret intelligence, she is forced to question her family’s safety, and her own. Only one thing is certain: in order to protect her children, she must leave them, forever. And someone is watching. Someone she thought she could trust. Someone who is determined to make them all pay.Stylish and assured, The Most Difficult Thing is an irresistible combination of contemporary espionage and domestic suspense, and a compulsive, highly charged examination of betrayal.

Anna Witherall has it all ... or so it seems. Married to David who she met at University, she has a successful career, a beautiful home and three year old twin daughters, Stella and Rose.

But Anna is hiding a dark secret, one that could bring her carefully constructed life crashing down around her ears at any given moment.

And so she is forced into making a decision.

The most difficult decision of her life.

Anna knows that if she herself doesn't make the decision, then someone may make a very different decision for her. And that definitely won't be a decision that Anna wants to be on the receiving end of.

This novel is one of those that you will find yourself unable to put down for any length of time. It's a bit of a roller coaster at times, and you need to pay attention if you don't want to fall off...

For me the most difficult thing about this novel, is the ending ... you never really get a satisfactory conclusion, and whilst for some novels that is absolutely fine, others need the loose ends tying up, and I feel as if this is one of those.

Overall a great novel though.

The Most Difficult Thing is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.
