The Nature of Fragile Things by Susan Meissner

A mail-order husband that turned out to be perfect until one morning a knock at the door shattered Sophie’s life.

Actually there are two more women whose lives are shattered by Sophie’s husband.  

THE NATURE OF FRAGILE THINGS takes us into the lives of Sophie, Belinda, Candace, and six-year-old Kat. 

Each woman has a different story, but Martin, Sophie’s husband, is at the center of all of them.

This book was about life’s choices, the resilience of women, the beauty of friendship, the support women give each other, and an added bit of mystery.

You will wonder where it is heading in the beginning, and it heads to another marvelous book by Susan Meissner.

Ms. Meissner wove the story line around her well-researched account of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake which added to the tension and beauty of this book. 5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
