Several months ago I finished a wonderful booked called "The Husband's Secret" by Liane Moriarty as part of the Mom's Reading group on Facebook. This is a great little online book club for those of you like me who are dying to be part of a real life book club but don't know of any (hint anyone in my real life who reads this....if you do book club feel free to invite me). I read this book and was instantly sucked in. Mainly because I wanted to find out what the hell was going on. The book begins by telling several characters stories. Each person's story is one chapter and each chapter switches narrators. With the switching not only did you get to know each character from their own perspective, you very quickly want to figure out how the hell everyone is connected. The leading ladies range from a housewife who sells tupperwear and is living the dream, a woman who just found out that her husband wants to leave her for her childhood best friend, and an older woman who is still recovering from her daughters death many years earlier. Sadly, I can't tell too much about the plot line of the of the book because it would give away major aspects of the story. I think the figuring out how all these woman are connected is one of the better aspects of the book and I don't want to take that from anyone reading the book.
My only complaint of the book is small, is it the epilogue. Oddly, it gives a commentary on the ending of the book and how things may have been different or why they happened. I felt like it was unnecessary and almost like the stories lines the author didn't go with. It didn't ruin anything, I just felt it wasn't needed. I would highly recommend this book, especially with the summer months coming up. This is a great little read. I would go 4 out of 5 star rating.
Also if anyone is interested go check out the Mom's Reading Group on Facebook, the have book talks both in June and July. I won't be participating in the June one but I am off to by the July one right now!
