Sophie is a fashion photographer who is the daughter of one of the first photojournalists to be recognised in the UK, however her idea of her father is based on a severely edited version of events in his life. Barbara, Sophie’s mother has vowed alongside all involved never to tell her a secret that she has kept for over thirty years.
A gripping tale about a woman discovering who she is through her art and history, which has been edited severely to protect her. This story is told from alternating Sophie and Barbara’s points of view and although I found both compelling in terms of narrative, I can’t actually say I particularly liked either character.
A good read but very reminiscent of a recent seralisation “A Place For Us” by Harriet Evans, but without the host of likeable characters. The Photographer’s Wife is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
