The Husband’s Secret opening line: Poor, poor Pandora.
Does the truth really set you free? In this book we discover that the truth can harm and hurt and that the truth can result in peace and absolution. Centered around St. Angela’s Parish on the North Shore of Sydney, I was able to relate to the book as my family live there. I could also easily recognize colloquial terms such as ‘spruiking’ from having watched numerous episodes of Master Chef Australia.
Cecilia uncovers a truth which helps Rachel find peace but yet totally affects her entire life. Does sharing the truth help her and is she too late? Will and Felicity share a truth and this helps Tess realize how life is meant to be, but was the cost of the truth worth the damage done?
This book was a good read and I really loved every moment of it. Once I worked out who was who and how they fit into the jigsaw of the book, it was easy to turn page after page, waiting to know what comes next.
