Our Wives Under the Sea | Julia Armfield
post image

Leah and Miri were married when Leah went on a deep sea expedition that went missing. The novel starts with her back at home but definitely not the same. In some ways the change could symbolize any partner becoming somewhat of a stranger over time, but in other ways it's a literary horror novel watching her wife's body become unfamiliar. The chapters alternate between points of view which always works for me, and I couldn't put it down. ↘️

ReadingEnvy Also I love both these covers.I get a lot of eARCs for books but try not to post about them until they are out, however I messed up and read this four months early and I'll never remember that long. One of my Goodreads groups was reading it as a group read, I guess because it was out in the UK already, so I just assumed! The rest of you, watch out in July! 1w
vivastory I'm looking forward to this one. I love the UK cover 💙 1w
ReadingEnvy @vivastory it's so great and captures the mood of the book very well 1w

Starting this one today. I know very little about it, except it's set after a deep sea mission catastrophe, and it's possibly about the relationship of one of the survivors and her wife. I'm intrigued.

Whoa. This book is beautiful and strange.
A metaphor for grief - how do you cope when your wife has returned when you thought she was dead, but she‘s no longer the same person you loved?
Powerful writing - gothic, romantic, and full of despair.
Thanks to Netgalley for the advance copy.

Cathythoughts Sounds great ! Great cover too 4mo
vivastory I agree with @Cathythoughts 📚 4mo
