Reading one book after the other

I'm on too many bookish sites but stumbled upon this one and am excited to get going. 

Great book, dark turn.

— feeling shocked
Hausfrau: A Novel - Jill Alexander Essbaum

This is a beautifully written book. Despite her beautiful family, Anna is not happy in Switzerland. She is depressed and goes through a series of affairs. But her secrets cannot stay hidden for long and soon Anna must face the consequences of her secrets.

 

You want to not like Anna but you cannot help but feel for her. It was a great book and I didn't expect the ending to take the turn that it did.
