The new novel from Liane Moriarty, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Husband's Secret, Big Little Lies, "and" What Alice Forgot," about how sometimes we don t appreciate how extraordinary our ordinary lives are until it's too late.
What a wonderful writer smart, wise, funny. Anne Lamott
Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It's just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?
In "Truly Madly Guilty," Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.
Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there's anything they can count on, it's each other.
Clementine and Erika are each other's oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid's larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.
Two months later, it won t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can t stop asking themselves the question: "What if we hadn t gone"?
In "Truly Madly Guilty," Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.
