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.

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.

Kept me entertained

The story, although not the most original, was still very entertaining and I can see how this could happen in real life. The narrator did a fantastic job giving each character life (which was not an easy task since there are many characters). It's a mystery but a drama as well. About how one tragedy can somehow connect and affect so many people and they have no idea that they are all in this one small world.

Liane writes an amazing story that is both realistic and imaginative at the same time. Caroline brings each character to life with ease. The many storylines are woven together like a beautiful tapestry and a great rhythm is maintained throughout the book!! Liane, keep writing!!!

The author crafted a fantastic story and interleaved the different strings beautifully. Her attention to the details of her characters is amazing. The reader did a great job of making you hear each character.
