Review: Truly Madly Guilty (2016) by Liane Moriarty

Truly Madly Guilty is a novel about love, marriage, and motherhood by Liane Moriarty. The novel tells the story of three mothers who are friends and their families. The novel explores the mothers’ relationships with their husbands and children, as well as their friendships with each other. The novel is told from the perspective of one of the mothers, Clementine.

Clementine is a stay-at-home mother who is married to a successful lawyer. She is mother to a young daughter, Caroline. Clementine is struggling with her role as a mother and feeling like she is not doing enough. She is also feeling guilty about her marriage and her husband’s success. When her best friend, Erika, invites her to a picnic, Clementine agrees to go.

At the picnic, Clementine and Erika’s other friend, Tiffany, discuss their marriages and children. Clementine confesses that she is having an affair with a man named Nick. She does not feel guilty about the affair, but she does feel guilty about her husband’s success. Tiffany confides in Clementine that she is also having an affair, but she feels guilty about it because she is cheating on her husband with his best friend.

The novel explores the themes of love, marriage, motherhood, and friendship. The novel is well-written and provides an interesting perspective on these themes.

I was really looking forward to reading this book because I love Liane Moriarty's writing. I was not disappointed! The story was wonderful and I could not put it down. I laughed, I cried, and I was completely engrossed in the lives of the characters. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read.
