Book it Sisters’ Grade:

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

Here is our review:

Judy BushB+This was an interesting story, and turned out to have a very interesting dilemma that made you really wonder what you would do. It was a little confusing figuring out the characters at first, but the writing style was very good and the character development really strong.
Janet Maisel
Mary HalseyInteresting question concerning husband but disappointed with language/situations so chose not to finish.
Tricia GadberryBI enjoyed this book as an easy read. I thought the characters were interesting, and the writing style was easy to read. There were some themes that ran throughout the book that were interesting. I would read this author again.
Suzanne RigbyBI enjoyed the moral dilemmas that these characters were faced with. The author was engaging and made me honestly relate to their situations and how I might react to a life-changing revelation. Made me grateful for my boring, uneventful life!
Denise LinkB-I had a hard time starting the book because it characters jumped around. Once I got to the middle of the book I really enjoyed it. Very hard decisions.
Cheryl ClowesBI liked this book once it got going. I was very interested to find out how all the characters were going to come together. I also liked how the one decision played out across all the characters lives.
Nina Yatsko
Megan LewisB-Enjoyed the book and moral questioning, but didn't love it. As a mother, it was difficult to deal with Janie's death and Polly's accident.
