A murder…A tragic accident…Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive. – Goodreads
This is one of those books that starts at the end and then shoots to the beginning and works its way back. There are some heavy topics of violence against women, domestic violence and bullying. Moriarty deals with these sensitive subjects with humour that does not offend. From the very beginning I started listening this book and I must say Caroline Lee is an excellent narrator. I purchased the paperback.
I thorougly enjoyed this book.
