Twisted River

Twisted RiverTwisted River by Siobhan MacDonald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kate and Mannix, parents in Limerick, and Hazel and Oscar, parents in Manhattan, decide to house-swap during a school break in October for the Irish family. The story is told from the parents’ points of view with chapters devoted to one parent.

Each family has problems with finances. Each husband has problems – one of which is outlined on the first page. Fergus, son of Kate and Mannix, is being bullied at school. Oscar abuses his wife, a teacher, who begins to suffer a type of PTSD and becomes unable to work.

Sounds depressing? Nope! This is a well written story which will keep readers turning the page! The plot is filled with surprising changes, including an ending that I find mysterious.
