"Sublime story of small town secrets and lies…"
As a Mum who's just dropped her youngest off for a first school visit, this tale of Mums at Pirriwee Public School that begins with an incident at a school 'orientation' day, is completely apposite for me and I guess for lots of you too.
The story is so well constructed and Liane Moriarty builds the tension wonderfully along the way. You know that something pretty horrific is going to happen at the school Trivia Night as much of the story is told in flashbacks but she cleverly keeps you guessing as to who the main protagonists will be and what will actually happen.
If you loved Liane Moriarty's previous bestseller; 'The Husband's Secret' (that won the most popular Richard and Judy Book Club title for Autumn 2013) then you will love this one too. From the broken daisy chain on the cover to the cracking dialogue and characterisation, everything works so well in this book. While the kids are at school (or on a school visit!), put your feet up and lose yourself in a truly engrossing read.Read moreLess
