The Husband's SecretThe Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an intricately woven and incredibly interesting story about betrayal, trust, forgiveness, and perspective. It is about the secrets we keep and the lies we tell ourselves all in relation to our perspective. The lives and perspectives of 3 women are skillfully woven together as they are forced to examine their core values and live with the consequences of same. The characters are consistent, real, and all of them are interesting. The issues are relevant.

It is a fast paced mystery with memorable Australian characters, witty humor and dialogue. If you are looking for a book that will keep you up at night wanting to know what happens then this is it. The metaphorical writing is superb, but the language is harsh which, if you follow my reviews, you know I feel is never necessary in truly good literature, and the palliative conclusion is not morally uplifting, thus it lost a star in my rating.
