Liane Moriarty: The Husband’s Secret Audio Book Summary
This is a story that has many elements, tragedy, comedy, guilt and drama, all perfectly conjugated in this disturbing story. As the story unfolds we can see how women take command of history and face difficult decisions.
Darkness is present in the story but is well handled by the author, he knows how to lead in an elegant and intelligent way, there is no doubt a good will towards the characters of the story. This novel takes place in Australia at the present time, the plot would have worked in ancient Greece in the same way, no doubt.
Cecilia is a woman who has control of her life, has the perfect life, money, a beautiful house the love of her three daughters who are great, and her husband is the best, always attentive and thoughtful she thinks she knows very well. However one day he discovers a letter that has been written by him, he has left it to be opened after his death, however what the letter reveals is something devastating, a terrible truth appears and it will leave you dismayed.
There are a number of women whom she hardly knows who will also be affected by the contents of that letter, an old schoolmate who after returning to her mother’s home because she discovered the infidelity of her husband with whom she considered his Best friend, there is also the old woman who is her neighbor, she lives in a state of complete desolation because her daughter was killed.
All these people who have no apparent relationship, more than the closeness of the city, will soon find that their lives have more in common than they believe and that they are oriented toward a dramatic end where the failures of the parents can have repercussions on the Life of the children, no doubt reminds a lot of a Greek tragedy, no matter if you order to assassinate the little one so that he does
not steal the throne to him, he will end up returning to kill you and become king.
The author plays a little with the beliefs of the characters and all those related to the story are Catholic, not the entire population of Australia is Protestant, the vast majority of the population is Catholic, was a gesture that the writer wanted to remarcar enough.
Undoubtedly it is a story that can be slow if you are looking for mystery, this is a novel that addresses the drama and human imperfection, the end is not predictable and without doubt is an agile reading that can be taken calmly or devour the Book in a hurry, without doubt is a reading you can take to the beach or some park.
