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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Fantastic ending"

    A little hard to follow until I learned the characters due to several families stories being told at the same time. After "getting it". It was hard to keep away from because I was do anxious to hear what happened next. The ending( under any circumstances, do not allow yourself to read it until the very end or it will ruin so much for you) completely took the whole book to a new amazing level.

    "Secrets affect more than you expect"

    Very well written. I loved how the three stories intertwined. I loved the 'what if's and the secrets they all held on to. Loved the Australian dialect. Definitely a must read for everyone. Caroline Lee did a great job with her narration.
