This isn’t the sort of book I’d normally read. I only picked it up because it was in a pile of paperbacks someone had brought in to work that had been sitting on top of a filing cabinet for a few days. ‘The Husband’s Secret’ was the top one. I read the first page and that was all I needed. Don’t really know what it was, but something just grabbed me and hauled me in. I love Liane Moriarty’s writing – it seems so simple, and yet she uses language like a professional pizza-maker – each word perfectly cut, formed and fitted into exactly the right place in such a way that you can almost touch each character.
Beautiful writing, sharply-drawn characters and a story that brought me to tears (mind you, I cry all the time, so that’s no recommendation). Just read it. Now.
