"Love's Tangled Web is filled with angst, love, questions, and finding one's self"

Love's Tangled Web , a novel by Keren Franklin

Review by Wendy 

"Love's Tangled Web is filled with angst, love, questions, and finding one's self"

 A picture-perfect marriage. A little harmless flirting. Two sisters, with lifelong resentments. The ultimate betrayal. Bridgette’s life, on the sun-drenched west coast of Australia, appears perfect – married to a successful lawyer, Joel, with two beautiful daughters and a leadership position in church. She even has herself fooled into thinking she’s got it all together. But there’s a perfect storm brewing, a wave of events that will sweep away Bridgette’s superficial world forever. Joel is harboring frustrations which his self-centered wife won’t acknowledge, and Bridgette’s sister is nursing an old grudge against her. When dangerous passions erupt between the two, Bridgette is blind-sided and humiliated. As destruction falls on everyone she loves, Bridgette must finally get real with herself… and with God. In the aftermath, an attractive younger man offers her his heart, but can Bridgette build a new life and a stronger love amid the rubble? Or is it possible to forgive the unforgivable?

Wow, imagine coming home and finding your sister in bed with your husband. OUCH! Bridgette and Piper have always had a tense relationship - one feeling like the good sister and one the bad. Perception is reality though. Devastated, Bridgette turns toward her church family and begins to learn more about herself. She also begins a relationship with a younger college man and from there, the gossip flies. Will Bridgette start a new life with her new man or will she learn to forgive, not only her husband but herself?

A page-turning, thought-provoking read, Love's Tangled Web is filled with angst, love, questions and finding one's self. The characters are realistic and the betrayals and hard truths are bitter pills to swallow. Keren Franklin does a superb job of writing this compelling, hard-to-put-down novel. The story will stay with you for days, long after you've read the last page. A recommended read!

I received a copy of this book from Bring it on! Communications,  in exchange for an honest review...
