Summary

My Darling Cecilia
If you’re reading this, then I’ve died . . .

Imagine your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret – something so terrible it would destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others too. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive . . .

Cecilia Fitzpatrick achieved it all – she’s an incredibly successful business woman, a pillar of her small community and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia – or each other – but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s devastating secret.

My Review

I literally just finished reading this book and had to sit down right away before I forgot anything.  I loved this book.  It was very well written, dramatic, and riveting.  At first, I did not know how the story of these three very different women was going to converge, but when it did-wow!  Since the main part of the plot is the “secret”, I am finding it really hard to review this wonderful story without giving more of the plot away than there is in the summary above.  Because really, it is an amazing turn of events that unfolds.  And the Epilogue kinda blew me away.   I would definitely recommend this book.  I am going to the library as soon as I can to get another book by this author-probably What Alice Forgot.  It looks so interesting!

My Rating

4.5 out of 5

  1. I completely share your enthusiasm for this book! I loved how engaging and exciting it was. It’s like the author managed to write a thriller, except it’s mostly about everyday events. I really liked that 🙂

  3. So glad to hear you enjoyed it! I bought a Kindle copy during a 1-day sale, and have heard great things so far, but haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Great job of reviewing it without giving anything away — that’s a hard feat to pull off! 🙂
