Summary
Alone in an empty house, Lucy tries to imagine the lives of her two young children. They have been gone for seven years, and she is tormented by the role she played in that heartbreaking loss. You can hardly see a glimpse of the sexy, edgy woman she used to be. Back then, she was a magnet for men like Matt, who loved her beyond reason, and Griffin, who wouldn't let go but always left her wanting more. Now the lies they told and the choices they made have come to haunt all three of them. With shattering turns, Lies You Wanted to Hear explores the way good people talk themselves into doing terrible, unthinkable things. What happens when we come to believe our own lies? And what price must we pay for our mistakes? A searing story that will leave you wondering what choices you would make, Lies You Wanted to Hear is a stunning debut
Summary
Explores what happens when lies cause more damage than the secrets they hide, following Lucy, who reflects on the loss of her two children and on the youthful attractiveness that led her into relationships with two complicated men
