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.

    Story
    "50 chapters of dullness"

    I always choose a book based on reviews. This choice was very misleading. The first 50 chapters were filled with too many characters who did a bunch of nothing. I found the characters to be extremely one dimensional and boring. It wasn't until the last few chapters when an interesting spark occurred. By then, it was too late.

    "Great listen!"

    Such an interesting story. You can pretty much figure out the big secret, but what is done with it is the interesting part. The author told a fine tale and the narrator brought it to life. Very enjoyable.

    "Entertaining"

    I appreciate how the author dovetails the story in the end. The characters came alive especially with the quality of narration.

    "Very Good story and narrator"

    The characters are nicely developed and the narrator is the icing on the cake. The combination of her voice and accent is what does it for me.

    "So juicy"

    I decided to read this book because I read little big lies from the same author and I absolutely loved it. I was not disappointed by this book. It sucks you in right from the beginning and delivers until the end.

    "Absorbing Australian dramatic novel"

    Intense novel illuminating the ways in which small decisions have large effects on how life unfolds. A great listen! Recommended.

    "I'm hooked"

    This was my first experience at an audio book and it open a whole new world for me. I love to read but as a mom of 3 rarely have the time to do so. This is an amazing listen. It kept me on my toes the entire time. I have since listened to 3 more Liane Moriarty books. I'm hooked. Please give this book a try it is worth every penny or your credit. I loved it!

    Story
    "A lot of rambling, but still good"

    I found this book to be not as good as "Big Little Lies." There was a lot of rambling on, for example, " should I tie my shoes or shouldn't i? What if I don't tie them? Bla, bla, bla. In all I thought the story itself was good, but a little drawn out.

    "Makes you think!"

    What a great book! I love all the twists and turns. It really makes you think about the chain reactions that happen every time you make a decision. The ripple effect.
