The Second Wife by: Kishan Paul

The Second WifeThe Second Wife by Kishan Paul
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

He had taken everything – her identity, her sanity, her family. The life she once had was gone. The life she learned to accept – gone as well.

A gripping account of Human Trafficking that will stay with you. What makes it so intense is that it can happen to anyone – that it could happen to you. Makes you question…What would I do? Could I survive? What makes you want to survive?

Alisha Dimarchi had everything. A successful career, a husband that adored her, a family that loved her. That is until Sayeed a Pakistani client of hers became fixated of making Alisha his wife. Kidnapping her and terrorizing her until she became nothing of who she use to be.

The narration is uniquely told by David her husband and herself. From her point of view of survival from sheer terror to fighting to survive. David point of view after 2 years later with starting new relationship realizing that he can’t move on without knowing what happened to his wife. Did she leave on her own or did something happen to her.

This unique narration tells the story of survival and how to continue on. Leaving what is behind and going forward with who you are. It is a hard story to read but it is a story that needs to be told on the horror of terrorism with its relation to human trafficking.

A Special Thank You to City Owl Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
