Liane Moriarty | Truly Madly Guilty | Ten-Second Spoilers


Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?

Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.

Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last-minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger-than-life personalities there will be a welcome respite.

Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?

In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don’t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.

My Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Truly Madly Guilty Spoilers:

The incident at the BBQ was Ruby falling in the backyard fountain and almost drowning. Oliver and Erica saved her with CPR. Everyone at the party thought it was their fault, but eventually it was all cleared up. Sadly, Harry died falling down the stairs when he was rushing to help Ruby. No one found him for weeks. His wife and child had died when a carnival ride fell apart and killed all the passengers. Holly had pushed Ruby into the fountain but only told Oliver and her grandmother.
