by Liane Moriarty
This is women’s fiction at its best. Three women, two husbands, and one mind-blowing letter.
Briefly: Cecilia, Rachel, and Tess are all loosely connected before Tess moves back to her hometown. Upon her return, Tess enrolls her son at the local school. It is there that she reconnects with Rachel and Cecilia. Rachel is the school’s secretary, and as a mother, Cecilia is heavily involved with the school.
One day, Cecilia finds a letter written by her husband, who just happens to be out of town for business. The letter stipulates that it should be read after the husband’s death. But Cecilia is too curious. She simply cannot wait. Once she reads the letter, the lives of all three women will never be the same.
Betrayal has never been so complex. Moriarty spins a web of lies, guilt, and pain that is addictive for readers. Great story, great pace, great read!
