About The Book
Lexie’s got the perfect life. And someone else wants it…
Lexie loves her home. She feels safe and secure in it – and loved, thanks to her boyfriend Tom.
But recently, something’s not been quite right. A book out of place. A wardrobe door left open. A set of keys going missing…
Tom thinks Lexie’s going mad – but then, he’s away more often than he’s at home nowadays, so he wouldn’t understand.
Because Lexie isn’t losing it. She knows there’s someone out there watching her. And, deep down, she knows there’s nothing she can do to make them stop…
Do you know your neighbours? Because Through The Wall is a story told between two different neighbours, Lexie and Harriett, one seems to have the perfect life, the other is so jealous that is capable of anything to take it from her.
This is a book of jealousy, but so much more that I don’t know if I’ll be able to share with you much without making any spoiler.
Lexie is a happy woman, has a lovely husband and a job she loves, but the only thing she desires is to get pregnant. She will become so obsessed with it that her relation with the people around her will start melting and putting the reader in a direct perspective of how is the suffering to want something that is not on your hands to make it possible. I really liked the insight of Lexie’s thoughts, trying to be pregnant could be something really easy or difficult, the problem is that we can not choose which ones we are. I have friends that had deep troubles getting pregnant and I was a little ashamed that for me it was so easy, seeing how they suffer while I was pregnant but they couldn’t be it was difficult for us, I can’t imagine how it was for them. That’s why I liked Lexie story, it’s not easy to suffer in silence and not being able to be happy for the people around you because what you want is not possible.
Let’s talk about Harriett, she was engaged, a long time ago, now she wants Tom, but Tom is with Lexie, she only has to convince him that she is better. Harriett was in an abusive relation until he left her, but she didn’t accept it, it will take a lot of effort for her to get over it.
There are twists, surprises and a very addictive read that you’ll finish in one stand.
