What Lies Between Us: A Novel

We rated this book:


What Lies Between Us by Nayomi Munaweera completely transports readers into a whole new world. It’s a world similar to our own, but has a poetic, dark, sad atmosphere. Love, death, pain, and loss are themes that ring throughout this beautifully told, story. What Lies Between Us is the perfect title for this novel. The death of a child is what lies between a husband and his wife. Every page is powerful, told with raw emotions that will sweep over readers and consume them whole. Anger, resentment and truth flow from the pages into readers’ hearts. The beginning drags readers in quickly, the middle leaves readers floored, and the ending leaves readers breathless. The beauty and ugliness of life all wrapped up in the end makes for a brilliant tale.

InsideWhat Lies Between Us Nayomi Munaweera introduces us to a woman’s confessions. The author’s portrayal of jealousy, mayhem, and revenge is intriguing. What Lies Between Us is a dark, thrilling tale of suspense that will leave readers happy that they did not miss reading it. The main character is definitely a heartbreaker. I highly recommend this novel to everyone. Once readers open it, it will capture both their minds and hearts.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
