Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well.

Publisher's Summary

"My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died...."

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all - she's an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia - or each other - but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.

Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses - and, ultimately, ourselves.

    "Unbelievable!!"

    So thorough and mesmerizing how each of the characters intertwine themselves and their fates. Could not recommend enough. I especially love the ending and how the epilogue throws in even more twists. Never saw that coming...

    "Suspenseful... Not really"

    I guessed everything that would happen/did happen. It was an easy enjoyAble read, just not much "surprise". Good story though.

    Story
    "Liane Moriarty is my new favorite author"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the third book I've listened to by Liane Moriarty (the others were What Alice Forgot and The Hypnotist's Lover). There's something unique about her characters that makes me love them all. The dialogue is funny and authentic and endearing. Moriarty's insight into the lives of women surprises me at times and her portrayal of the fragile, yet strong relationships between the characters are so true to life and humorous and heartrending and ludicrous, just like in real life. I'm looking forward to the fourth! Oh, and I do hope they continue to be narrated by either Caroline Lee or Tamara Lovatt Smith. Maybe it's that magical Australian accent, but they are my favorite narrators on Audible.
