Description

I'll tell you something, something important. Love is a decision. Not a feeling. That's what you young people don't realise. That's why you're always off divorcing each other. No offence, dear.

So decrees the formidable Connie Thrum of Scribbly Gum Island. She is the chief decision-maker of a rather unconventional family and her word is law. It's been over 70 years since Connie and her sister Rose visited their neighbours and found the kettle boiling and a baby waking for her feed, but no sign of her parents. The 'Munro Baby Mystery' still hasn't been solved and tourists can visit the abandoned home, exactly as it was found in 1932.

But now Connie has passed away and the island residents ponder her legacy. Sophie Honeywell is looking down the barrel of her 40th birthday and still hoping for that fairytale ending. Her beautiful new friend Grace, the Munro Baby's grand daughter, can't tell anyone what she hopes for. It would be too shocking.

Meanwhile, a frumpy housewife makes a pact with a stranger, an old lady starts making her own decisions and a family secret finally explodes on an extraordinary night of mulled wine, fire-eating, and face-painting - The Last Anniversary.

"A stunner... Moriarty's prose turns from funny through poignant to frightening in an artful snap." ( Publishers Weekly)

wonderful characters and great performance

As always with Moriarty the characters are so well described and interesting. The story is lovely and engaging. Lee's performance is just perfect, could not be better.

Not as good as her other books

Loved Truly Madly Guilty and Big Little Lies. This wasn't as satisfying. Characters a bit shallow and plot not as page turning as the others.

Just lovely!

If you love Liane Moriarty's books you don't want to miss this one. It had everything I've come to expect. Sophie is one of my favourite characters in a long time. Well worth your credit.

Fabulously done!

The narration is first rate. The characters are rich and edgy and the storyline keeps you engaged! A very worthwhile "read"!

So sad it’s over!

I love this author’s books, yet I don’t quite know how to describe them… “slice of life”? I've read Little Big Lies, The Husband’s Secret, What Alice Forgot, Three Wishes and love them all.

I was so absorbed in this tale that I could have gone on reading it for days! I’d give it 6 out 5 if I could for the sheer entertainment it provided me - I did not want to put it down!

I did have a bit of trouble keeping track of how everyone was related to each other, but that’s typical for me; it did not ruin the story.

I can’t wait to sink my teeth into another one of her excellent stories, sadly for me there is only one left that I have not read: The Hypnotist’s Love Story.

I hope she’s busy writing more!

I loved all of the characters and how the all linked up together, also I was on the edge throughout the book to find out what happened in the end.

The last 5 minutes.

Yes, I love listening to her.

Any additional comments?

This was a fantastic book, I have read all Liane Moriarty books and I have never been disappointed. I loved they way I was on edge through the whole book waiting to find out what happened. Sad its finished now though. Come on Liane! I'm ready for your next book

nice Story

Ein bisschen langatmig, was die Charaktere nicht so griffig macht . Die Geschichte ist originell. Die Sprecherin ist gut.
