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.

    "It was okay"

    I completed this book for an upcoming book club meeting only to realize I had already started over a year ago and was halfway through. Obviously it wasn't memorable. But I finished it the second time around and it did bring into question various 'what would you do?' Scenarios. Not something I would recommend to my friends.

    Story
    "I couldn't even listen to the narrators voice for a chapter it's awful"

    I had a extremely hard time understanding what the narrator was even trying to say so I didn't even finish the first chapter, it was a true waste of a credit I'm very disappointed.

    "Amazing."

    GREAT book. It constantly had me on my toes about what would happen next. The epilogue was also a great ending to a truly great book. H

    "The Epilogue makes you ponder the What ifs"

    The audio performance was really on point. I was able to have the movie playing out in my mind's eye perfectly. I could see each personality as it was developed and became attached to each character. The story shows the intricacies of life and kept me sneaking away to hear more yet the ending was satisfying. It certainly was not happily ever after but it is that life goes and everyone has secrets. Tess' mother Lucy sums it up with "Honesty is over rated" and we know that there are times when keeping quiet is the choice that is best in the end...but is it?

    "Thumbs up"

    It took me a few chapters in before I connected with the characters and cared about the story. Once you're hooked though, you won't be able to put the book down.
