The Forgotten Wife book cover


The Forgotten Wife

When Shelley first met Greg, her life had been full of possibility. But now, ten years later Greg has gone and she has hidden a box, under a bed in a room she never goes into. Every day she acts like everything is normal, hiding from her past. Until one day, everything changes.  When Shelley becomes friends with her new neighbour Lara, she soon discovers she is not the only one carrying a deep heartache.

As her friendship with Lara deepens, Shelley starts to wonder what might happen if she opens the box she’s hidden away. Will the secrets from her past – about what she lost, what she’s hiding from, and what she has been doing her best to forget – destroy her?

A heartbreaking emotional drama about the power of friendship that will make you laugh and cry.

Tickets: Free, booking required.  Donations to Corringham Library welcome on the day.
