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.

    "Absolutely loved."

    What an exciting story. I was really hoping for a different ending for one of the couples. I enjoyed it all the same. The recap at the end of the story was quite enjoyable.

    "Dynamic Duo!"

    This is my second book I've listened to by Liane Moriarty and narrated by Caroline Lee. The first was "Big Little Lies," which I loved so much I had to check out this one. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

    I don't know what's more fantastic - the unique story, beautiful writing, and wonderful characters or Lee's AMAZING narration that makes listening to the story so much more enjoyable. I loved this book so much and look forward to another listen of this dynamic duo!

    "Okay Start~Great Storyline~Fantastic Ending"

    No spoilers here, but this book had one of the greatest endings ever. It takes a bit to get to "What's in the Letter" I wasn't expecting what it was, but how these three women and stories connect is amazing writing.
    I loved how it all came together and ended and the Epilog is so well done.
    This book is a good story and kept my interest.
    Loved Caroline Lee as the narrator. She is amazing and so talented.
    Don't hesitate getting this one. You won't be sorry.

    "Wow!"

    The story was sooo intriguing! The writing was beautiful. There were lines that took my breath away. There's so much to this story, and I loved the writer's technique (I can't say more without giving away anything). The narrator was fantastic and really brought this book to life. Will definitely recommend this to some people!

    Story
    "Slow, slow slow"

    I couldn't make it past chapter 3. Extremely slow, horrible reader, and boring story. I need a book to capture SOME of my attention within the first couple of chapters. Couldn't get there with this book. Snoozer for me.

    Story
    "Pleasantly Surprised"
    Any additional comments?

    I was afraid that this would be a lightweight "chick" book and was pleasantly surprised that it actually had depth and provoked thoughts about life and relationships. The epilogue was especially good - something which I did not anticipate. Would recommend this as a good, thoughtful read

    Story
    "Fell Flat"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I made the mistake of listening to Big Little Lies first, which I loved. In comparison, this book fell flat, was predictable, and left me unmoved. I kept waiting for things to get juicier or more exciting. I found myself telling the characters out loud as I listened how horrible they all were.
