But when Cecilia opens up a Pandora's box, their lives will intersect in ways none of them could foresee.Cecilia is the woman who seems to have it all: a successful career, a gorgeous husband, and three wonderful daughters. One day she finds an old tattered letter in the attic that's addressed to her, to be opened only in the event of her husband's death. But he's still very much alive. When Cecilia casually mentions it to him on the phone, he laughs it off, telling her to put the letter away. Yet when he flies home early from an overseas business trip, and then frantically searches for the letter, Cecilia realizes there's something important in it, something she needs to know. Yet even Pandora herself could not prepare Cecilia for what the letter reveals.

    Good quick listen. Keeps you interested in the character and what's going to happen next. Character descriptions and settings are well thought out. Interesting inter personnel conflicts.

  • Libby Morrison

    The book was okay. Wasn't my favorite. It took a while to finish. The story was a good one. Just seemed to go way round the real issue. Loved the ending.

  • Christina Salvatore

    This book was a little slow to start and I was surprised by the multiply characters at first. But once it got going I wanted to listen to more and more. Plus I do love a book where the characters' stories are weaved together.

  • Sarah Gable

    Loved this book. It was pretty long and slow to start, but never stopped moving after the first secret was revealed. I recommend it!

  • Susan Williams

    It took a few chapters for me to get into the story, but once I did, I totally enjoyed this book. The narrator got on my nerves at first, but again, after a few chapters, I loved her! Very good story and made my drive to work so enjoyable. Another person at work had recommended it, so I had to check in with her every day.
