"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." —Bee Gees
At first I thought the husband's big secret was something else entirely (I imagine I wasn't alone in thinking it might've been an illegitimate child). To me this book didn't have as big of an impact as another one from the author, Big Little Lies, which I'd read first despite being written later. But just like BLL it managed to be fluffy yet serious, fun yet grave at the same time.
