The Husband's Secret

Great book about what do we really know about the people in our orbit? Each character of the book is spinning in their own world of work, home life, and their own insecurities. They are all busy, so busy they are living life without really seeing what's going on around them or with the people they love. Parents don't know their own children- they have no idea if someone is bullying them, why they love the subjects they do, or even if they have someone special in their life. Couples have secrets, as do each of the many different generations. They see each other as fixtures in their lives, accepting what they choose to believe and being blind to everything else. Each character is a separate identity with hopes, dreams, issues, and lastly dangerous secrets that will affect how they are perceived as well as destroy the illusion they all create to protect themselves. I read this book in one night, I simply could not put it down. Moiarty propels you into any neighborhood, in any country with relatable characters, all blind to everything except their own perceptions. I don't want to give to much away- but it was brilliant! The Husband's Secret is a box, much like Pandora's that once opened- the consequences are shattering.

Happy Reading!
