    BookshelfMonstrosity: Adults from many walks of life are brought together in these well-characterized novels, though not always for happy reasons. Though both feature large casts of realistic, complex characters, layered plots, and naturalistic dialogue, Heart and Soul is a lighter read.… (more)

Great book. Information let out at all the right times. Good ending. ( )

Good reading! But I think Moriarty could have chosen a much better title. "The Husband's Secret" makes the book sound like a Harlequin romance, and it isn't that at all. It's an examination of a tangle of people who each have their mistakes, secrets, motives, and moral dilemmas, and whose lives are connected in such a way that the wrong (or maybe the right??) tug of a loose end could unravel everything for everyone. Interesting and thought-provoking. ( )

Moriarty is consistent at giving you a well-paced story that tugs at your heart--her books kind of remind me of the show This Is Us. ( )

Imagina que tu marido te hubiera escrito una carta para que la abrieras después de su muerte. Imagina también que la carta contuviera su secreto más oscuro y mejor guardado, capaz de destruir vuestra vida juntos y también vidas ajenas. Imagina, entonces, que encontraras la carta mientras tu marido todavía estuviera en plenitud de facultades...

Cecilia Fitzpatrick lo tiene todo: lleva un negocio boyante, es un bastión de su pequeña comunidad y una esposa y madre abnegada. Su vida está tan ordenada e inmaculada como su hogar. Pero esa carta está a punto de echarlo todo por tierra, y no solo para ella: Rachel y Tess, que apenas la conocen ni se conocen entre sí, también van a sufrir las devastadoras repercusiones del secreto de su marido.

Liane Moriarty ha escrito una apasionante novela que nos dará mucho que pensar sobre hasta qué punto conocemos a nuestras parejas... y a nosotros mismos.

Good story, longer than it needed to be and had an unsatisfying ending in my opinion. ( )
