The Unbreakables by Lisa Barr is a novel of betrayal, family and friendships, and the courage to take chances. It also has a splash of romance and passion.
A secret online dating site for married and committed couples has been hacked. 32 million cheaters worldwide have been exposed.
Sophie Bloom, a devoted wife and mother, has been with her high school sweetheart, Gabe, for 25 years. Ava, their 19 year old daughter is studying in Paris.
At Sophie’s 42nd birthday dinner and in front of her closest friends, she discovers that her husband has been up to no good. He has the record for the most transactions in their suburb on the Ashley Madison dating site.
Sophie’s world is shattered. How could she not have known!? She has given everything she had to her family, leaving nothing for herself.
While Sophie is confronting Gabe, and realising there is a lot more he is hiding.
Ava rings from Paris and is upset as her own boyfriend has been cheating on her. Sophie takes this opportunity to book a one way ticket to Paris to comfort her daughter.
The time away will give her a chance to think.
Spending time in the south of France awakens Sophie’s own desires and when an opportunity arises she is able to resume her passion as a sculptor.
I loved this book, the quote from the fabulous book cover “When your life falls apart…create a new one” is exactly what Sophie does. Sophie is a great vibrant character and relates her emotional journey with humour.
The writing style allows you to share and feel Sophie’s anger, frustration and confusion as she realises she has put Gabe and Ava first, and now it is time to let the real Sophie emerge and grab what life has to offer her.
There is plenty of action to keep you turning the pages to see if Sophie is “unbreakable”.
Thoroughly recommend this book.

I love to read, any book on any topic. I now love ebooks as they are easier to store, I was running out of bookshelves! My other interests are family, gardening and our beautiful King Charles spaniel dog who is my reading companion.
