‘The Other Brother’ By christiana Perkins

Anyone who knows Isabelle thinks she has a perfect life. A perfect doting husband, a perfect house on a cute little neighborhood, and she’s blessed with incredibly good looks. Little do they know that Isabelle is really good at hiding. Hiding the bruises her husband gives her, hiding how lonely she really is, and how she cries almost everyday. She unexpectedly finds solace in her brother in law when her husband ends up in a coma after a terrible accident. Isabelle feels conflicted and guilty for feeling the way she does. She should be worried about her husband instead of enjoying the fact that he’s not around and the company of his brother.
