I started this book on our way home from Nebraska and finally finished it over the weekend. Honestly, I didn’t want to put it down BUT it’s also hard for me to read more than a chapter at a time before I am interrupted.
This book starts out with Cecilia Fitzpatrick- the wondermom who sells Tupperware and always has everything put in its place, as well as her life figured out. She’s involved in her kids’ school, has a happy marriage, and seems to be one of those women who just have it all together. Then she discovers a letter in the attic written by her husband, to only be opened by her when he dies. At first, she just ignores it, but when he returns home suddenly after she told him she found it, curiosity overtakes and she HAS to read it. The contents are like Pandora’s box- they alter the course of everything else– including the lives of two other strangers.
This book is masterfully written. The weaving of the three people into every aspect and every page is incredible, and I couldn’t WAIT to find out what happened. It also makes you think about how your own life could have ended up differently if A, B, and C would/could have happened. Thought provoking and beautifully written. Don’t miss this book. It is the perfect summer read!
