finished reading

I liked this book.

It's the story of three women: Cecilia, Rachel, and Tess. They are acquaintances whose lives are going to become entwined because of secrets. Cecilia finds a letter from her husband that instructs her to open in the event of his death--and she struggles with whether to open it or not. His secret shatters Cecilia's world. Rachel is grieving the death of her daughter when her son announces he and his family are moving half-way around the world--taking her beloved grandson away. And Tess is also reeling from the aftermath of a secret by those closest to her.

It's not high literature but there were enough twists to make it unpredictable. It is a great summer read, or a great choice between heavier fare. I think I need to find more by this author.

These are the best kinds of books. I just can't get into 'high lit' anymore. Too much else on my mind. This book sounds intriguing.

Sounds promising. If my TBR wasn't already hip deep.
