Three wives, one letter, and an explosive secret that will change everything.
He said, she said. Who do you believe?
Jessica, Stephanie and Priyanka are complete strangers, but they have one thing in common: they’ve each received a letter accusing their husbands of committing a sexual assault more than two decades prior. Is the accusation true or is there more to the story? It was a secret that remained buried for years.
With their worlds suddenly turned upside down, they don’t know who to trust—a complete stranger or the men they love and built their lives with. The three women come together to embark on a hunt for the truth, but they are hardly prepared for what they will discover. Who is the victim, and will justice ultimately be served?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This compelling psychological thriller sifts through the aftershocks of a terrible secret. When Jess, Priyanka, and Stephanie each receive a letter accusing their husbands of a years-old sex crime, their lives become intertwined in shocking and uncomfortable ways. As the women probe for answers, they’re forced to reexamine their marriages. That’s when unsettling doubts creep in and the line between truth and lies blurs. Cate Ray does an excellent job raising the tension as she guides the story through alternating points of view, exploring themes of guilt, responsibility, and the treachery of he-said-she-said debates. The result is a gripping and intricate story about women’s courage in the face of something truly dangerous: men with an injured sense of masculinity.
I thought it was an ok book. There was a lot of symbolism in the book, such as keys and doors. I had trouble following the story line and it’s meaning
sometimes. The three main characters’ personalities were so different, I’m surprised they were even friends. It goes to show that they had one common goal that was keeping them together.
