You’ll be scared to let your kid out after this book. With reason!
Have you read The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty? Without any spoilers, it’s the unputadownable tale of three families woven around the same secret.
A road accident and the strangling of a teenager take the characters into a place where secrets abound, but only one really matters.
Set in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, you’ll like the characters. I recognised the ‘eager’ mum, always on every committee, always perfectly turned out with shiny kids and an adoring hsuband. (And that’s certainly not self recognition, by the way).
I saw the woman who was ballsing up her marriage without realising it. Her cousin at the center of her life, controlling it.
I felt for the mother whose kid died. Her story is the one that will make you want to stop your older children leaving the house. Ever.
This is definitely worth a read. I suspect literary critics would steer away from The Husband’s Secret with a sneer. But Mums, Moms and Dads everywhere should be turning its pages and asking: What secrets define me and where might they lead?
