I loved this book The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty.
It’s about husbands and wives and mothers and daughters and sisters and any practically any other relationships you can think of, including one’s relationship with oneself. Boom.
Real, messy, honest relationships.
One note: Pay attention at the beginning of the book because you will be introduced to several characters and you don’t want to be distracted or multitasking and get confused.
Like I did.
No problem, though. I just referred to the drawing at the beginning of the book and it straightened me right out.
The best quote from the book is on page 128, a wife thinking about her husband:
“She’d hated him for a while over that. Really hated him. But then she just got tired of hating him and started loving him again. It was easier.”
This book has a twist at the end that I never saw coming. Totally worth reading. I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it. I had the characters dancing around in my head at the oddest moments.
And is one of the marks of a truly great book?
Get it here: The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty. I highly recommend this book and any of her other books (I wrote about one of them in the past, What Alice Forgot.
