THE COMFORT OF LIES
Meyers creates three distinct voices, with each woman speaking from a place of pain and strength while navigating complicated emotions in the aftermath of a life-changing event. The alternating perspectives maintain the intensity of the emotions and relationships, leading to the inevitable decision of which is more powerful: the harm caused by dishonesty, or the strength of forgiveness and love.
Five years ago, the lives of three women became inextricably intertwined. Tia was consumed by love for a married man, so she was devastated when he abandoned her after learning she was pregnant. Caroline adopted a baby she did not want, to give her husband the family he desired. Juliette fought to save her family, while dealing with the betrayal of her husband’s affair. When Juliette opens a letter meant for her husband, filled with photos of a little girl that Juliette never knew about, she sets off on a journey to uncover the truth and inadvertently changes all of their lives forever.
