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
    "Holy Moly!"

    So, the book started out a bit weird and confusing. There were 3 different stories going and it was kind of awkward how they didn't connect. By the end, they totally connected. This book is full of twists, turns, and unexpected surprises. I was genuinely sad when it was over.

    "Amazing!"

    The book was amazing, I loved how Liane detailed every little thing as to give you a mental picture. And I enjoyed Caroline Lee's voice and how well spoken she was. There were a few things that were off; like maybe taken out of the book or added that wasn't in the audio but that, to me, didn't take away how much I LOVED THIS BOOK!

    "Wonderful twists and story"

    I had hesitated to read this book fearing it to be a mindless romp through suburban lives. What a delight to find it an unpredictable, non-formula story that probed human emotions with humor, honesty and pathos.

    The story wove in and out of lives like a master weaver. The threads each preoccupied with their own color and textures created a complex, memorable tapestry of lives, loves, loss and resilience.

    It's long and sometimes redundant, but definitely rewarding.

    "Something tovspend a few hours with."

    Story was predictable. It wasn't necessary a bad story, just saw it all coming. I won't be rereading this one.
