The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty

From Liane Moriarty, author of #1 New York Times bestsellers The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, comes an unforgettable novel defined by her signature sharp wit, page-turning storyline, and lovable and eccentric characters.

Sophie Honeywell always wondered if Thomas Gordon was the one who got away. He was the perfect boyfriend, but on the day he was going to propose, she broke his heart. A year later he married his travel agent, while Sophie has been mortifyingly single ever since. Now Thomas is back in her life because Sophie has unexpectedly inherited his aunt Connie's house on Scribbly Gum Island—home of the famously unsolved Munro Baby mystery.

Sophie moves onto the island and begins a new life as part of an unconventional family, where it seems everyone has a secret. Grace, a beautiful young mother, is feverishly planning a shocking escape from her perfect life. Margie, a frumpy housewife, has made a pact with a stranger, while dreamy Aunt Rose wonders if maybe it's about time she started making her own decisions.

As Sophie's life becomes increasingly complicated, she discovers that sometimes you have to stop waiting around—and come up with your own fairy-tale ending.

I was devastated when it ended! The characters are so unique and heart-warming that you feel as though you just lost close friends when you close the book. Moriarty's writing style can make you both laugh and cry. She knows how to write in a way that all her audience can relate too. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone; one of the best I've ever read.

I loved this book. It is very different from great many books I read. As soon as you get to know who is who in this book, you just read and enjoy. Nicely written, great characters and interesting story. Highly recommend this one. I now got her only other book she has written 'Three Wishes' and can't wait to read it.

This is my second book by this author, and I am starting a third tonight.  Characters were all likeable, and the story could one minute be very drama filled while the next was so clever and funny.  What a great ending.  I could just picture all of the goings on as they were happening!

This is one of my favorite books loving each and every complex character. I like the way the author, Liane Moriaty, hops around with the story line and would recommend reading this book as well as another one of her novels, Three Wishes, to anyone from young adult to senior citizen.

In 1932 Scribbly Gum Island, Australians Alice and Jack Munro vanish without a trace leaving behind their infant daughter found by Connie and Rose Doughty. The case became internationally known as 'The Baby Munro Mystery' and soon led to the tiny island becoming a tourist spot especially due to the efforts of the sisters.----------------- Over the next seven decades the Doughty family has made a fortune off the Enigma of the Baby Munro Mystery. However, now the matriarch Connie dies ending her iron control of the purse strings. The family members quickly war with one another ending the fragile peace that Connie fostered on everyone. Rose may still be alive, but is too much the romantic dreamer to enforce a code of ethics on the family. Though she only met Aunt Connie a few times, Sophie Honeywell, who ended her relationship with Scribbly Gum native Thomas Gordon, inherits her home. Sophie moves to escape Sydney though she fears that seeing Thomas will remind her that she let go of her probable soulmate, but instead deals with five generations of eccentric acrimonious kin.--------------------- Though Liane Moriarty endows her vast cast with varying personalities and physical traits readers will need a scorecard to keep track of who¿s who, which can become overwhelming. Still this is a rich complex tale containing numerous well written subplots involving aging, financial dictatorship, postpartum depression, hetero and homo sexual relationships, amidst many others as each player has a major issue. The tie that brings everyone and all the subplots together remains the Enigma baby abandonment that will have the audience hooked wondering what happened in 1932 that still impacts everyone today.----------------- Harriet Klausner

This book was a let down after reading "What Alice Forgot" and "Husband's Secret". I didn't have the enthusiasm to finish it.

The story was very strange to say the least. But I continued to read the book, and became interested in the plot, only to be very disappointed by the ending.

I couldn't put this book down. The characters were delightful and the story line had one surprise after another. The author skillfully creates such empathy for all the characters that I found myself laughing, crying and cheering for them all. I plan to read more of Liane Moriarty's books.

This is a good book with a good multi-faceted plot and well-developed characters. But it's not my favorite of the author's books.
