Description

Joely should have scarpered when she had the chance but she too went on to prove how idiotic she could be. This 'couldn't help it' crap is a lie rapists tell to excuse their utter disregard for the emotional and physical safety of women. I think this is one of the novels great strengths, Lewis uses characters to pose questions to our readers and some of these questions will stick with you for a long time. I must admit to skim reading the last three staves to find out what unbelievable thing would happen next.

Freda has never told her story before but now she's ready to set the record straight and to right a wrong that's haunted her. But it gave us as readers, food for thought that there is more to the story than one might at first think. During our meeting we discussed the book a little, but we mostly considered some of the discussion points that come from reading the book.One of the things this author does really well is create complex situations which are incredibly realistic and very easy to feel involved in. My second Susan Lewis read of the year and whilst there were large sections of the book that held my attention, on the whole it didn't quite hook me like Home Truths had done.

But of course, this not-yet-fully-formed woman was irresistible and that is somehow ON HER and not on him to keep his dick in his pants, the older person in a position of authority.This book poses the question, if it is a case of statutory rape, and an adult having carnal knowledge of a minor, but both parties are truly in love with each other, does that make it okay?

Yes there were uncomfortable parts, a 25 year old teacher grooming his 15 year old pupil and the abuse that followed but in some ways it alerts the reader to how the abuser snares his young victim and remember she was a child even though she was promiscuous and fell in love with him. I think it had a great start and then derailed at some point and I’m not sure what happened from there. I know times were different in the 60s but it is never acknowledged that a 15yr old can't have an 'affair' with her teacher, this relationship is abusive and illegal. And now Freda has forgiven Marianne for her 'lies' even though she still reveres her brother as though he never set a foot wrong in his life? Freda has brought Joely to her dungeon-like house to tell her that her mother screwed her teacher and her brother is only her half brother because the teacher is her brother's father and her brother's father was FREDA'S BROTHER.Young Freda's love for David seem to be celebrated and left a bad taste, which meant that ultimately how the story unravelled didnt quite work for me.

I think you’ll enjoy 'My Lies, Your Lies' if you can suspend disbelief and go in expecting this as more of a “suspense for part one and then it turns into a family drama for part two” book! She is soon surprised to discover that the truth lies much closer to home and is bizarrely connected to her. And then Freda LOCKS JOELY IN A TOWER WITHOUT FOOD and disappears to confront Freda's mother (Marianne) because she ruined her brother's life 50 years ago. I would go as far as to say this is the best book I’ve read this year and I did not want it to end, oh my what an ending.Although most cases of sexual interest in any children below the age of consent is often labelled as pedophilia. It tells both sides of a story and no matter how much sympathy if any you have for David or Sir , having sex with a fifteen year old is a crime and irresponsible. Susan Lewis always tells us a great story, but this time she told a great story, the intrigue, the mystery and twists will keep you guessing and wondering if you know left from right.
