A story of 3 women whose lives are deeply intertwined...but aren't quite aware of it at the beginning. The story is told from the three women's POVs. Normally, I'm not crazy about alternating perspectives, especially three people. However, Liane did a wonderful job of weaving their lives and stories in a manner that was beautiful and heartbreaking.

The "husband's secret" was not at all what I was expecting. When I did find out, the plot became a race to find out how these women were going to have all their secrets revealed. ( )

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. The storyline, characters and relationships and the writing style all make this an excellent read. A little slow to get into and some initial confusion because of the number of points of view until one gets familiar with the cast, but worth the effort. Recommended. ( )

4/5 because it felt like it as dragging at points, but overall a really good read. I very much love the message in the very last paragraph. ( )
