The following is a recent review from the 2013 list of Amy Einhorn Books.
The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cecelia, Tess and Rachael have part of their lives in common. Cecelia happens upon a letter written many years earlier by her husband and address to her to open if he dies. As she ponders whether to open in now, her husband is very much alive but away on business, her life unfolds around her. It intermingles with Rachael's life, at her daughter's elementary school. The PE teacher at the school grew up in the area, even dated Rachael's daughter, Janie. Tess grew up there too and is now home while she sorts out the news of her husband's affair with her cousin and best friend Felicity. Tangled webs are woven and must surely destroy lives. Or must they?
I loved this book. Liane Moriarty's characters were very real to me. They experienced feelings that we all have experienced at one time or another. They know of guilt and anguish, of love and hate, of ambivalence and abhorrence. They are human.
This was also an ebook on my kindle, so it satisfies another challenge that I participate in. I originally decided to try to read 10 EBooks. I completed that level so the next level was 25, I may not make the goal. But I have a lot of books on my kindle and seem to keep downloading more! You can participate too, though you might just want to wait and see if this challenge in sponsored again in 2014. I will look for it. If you want to check it out, just go to Sarah's blog Workaday Reads and see what everyone else is reading on their electronic device.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy,
