characters ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Mary Loudon For commitment she is forced to choose between family and self with lifelong conseuences for everyone Infused with her trademark precision clarity and dark humour Mary Loudon’s searing highly charged novel My House is Falling Down is a fearless exploration of what infidelity means when no one is lying and how brutal honesty may yet prove the biggest taboo in our relationship. My House Is Falling Down is a dramatic and beautiful telling of a love affair and its repercussions Lucy is 42 years old married to artist Mark who is deaf and with young twin daughters When she meets Angus a much older man she is swept away by romantic love and lust for him What makes this book unusual is that the extramarital affair at the heart of the story becomes a menage a trois as Mark allows the relationship between Lucy and Angus to continueThe characters are very well drawn and although I didn't like Angus that didn't spoil the book at all As far as Lucy is concerned perhaps it is not only men who feel they are losing out in middle age But whereas they usually fall for younger models Lucy has fallen hard for an older man She has reached a crisis in her life and each man gives her something the other doesn't But how many husbands would react the same as Mark Lots to think about and discuss here My House Is Falling Down is perfect for book clubs and I highly recommend it

Friend loaned this book to me uite liked the writing style enjoyed the detail of daily life and some of her observations Entire story told from Lucy's perspective and I found I freuently wanted to hear from Mark and what made him tick not Lucy's opinion of that Not too interested in Angus' perspective his was pretty obvious and I grew tired of Lucy's rhapsodizing about him his body etc etc But because I struggled to understand how this situation could play out the way that it did I just couldn't relate I needed to know about Mark

My House Is Falling DownAs kept him sane it has alienated his wifeWhen Lucy falls in love with Angus a pianist in his sixties her shock is extreme Adamant that she will not deceive her husband she instead asks his advice Mark’s reaction however is startlingly unorthodox leaving Lucy to steer an impossible course between duty and desire adventure and security As her marriage falters and Angus presses. Compelling and completely believable triangle with a woman at the centre But is it infidelity when you don't lie that's uestion posed by novelist Mary LoudonLucy has a good life She is a dedicated mother in her early forties with twin girls and a husband who is a successful painter who has anchored her life after a younger period of drifting from country to country She also has a part time job as a photographer mainly children and pets What's not to like OK motherhood is not uite what she expected and her husband can be self absorbed but basically nothing until she meets Angus a sixty year old concert pianist at a party There is an instant attraction but instead of either walking away or sneaking around she asks her husband whether she should accept his invitation to go to a concert Interestingly he decides not to stand in her way and tells her she should make her own decisions after all he does not own herThe book is told in both flashback and forward from Lucy and Angus's first 'date' so we understand why Lucy is so vulnerable and slowly Mark comes into focus We also discover about Angus's background too but he is the least interesting of the three charactersWould I recommend this book to someone dealing with the fall out of infidelity Probably not if you are at the beginning of your recovery especially if you are the discoverer of the affair Mark's passivity will get you shouting at the book but possibly by the end you will understand fully why he chose to step back Like all people having an affair Lucy is wilfully blind and I think that will infuriate you However if you want to know HOW COULD YOU This book lays it all out and shows how someone having an affair justifies it to her or himselfIf you are just a general reader I think you will be captivated At one point I went past by stop of the tube and had to come back The characters are complex and that makes for a satisfying read even if you don't particularly like them OK I guessed how it would end but that doesn't matter I felt my understanding of human nature was definitely deepened
