Publisher's Summary

When Jill's husband discovers he can never have children, it tears a hole in their marriage that Jill doesn't know how to repair. Frustrated, she seeks comfort in her friends: fierce Leigh, with her high-powered career and doting family, and sweet, uncomplicated Wendy, who has a rock-solid marriage any woman would envy.
Leigh and Wendy's lives seem perfect. But beneath the surface are secrets that could tear their friendship apart.
Leigh has grown tired of her stay-at-home husband and is looking for excitement - outside of the marriage bed. And after seventeen years of marriage, Wendy can't shake the sense that there is something missing in her life.
As Jill is drawn deeper into her friends' relationships, she is confronted by a temptation of her own: an intriguing stranger whose good looks and charm spark an instant connection.
Full of the realities of modern-day marriage, The Secrets of Married Women asks the question: how well can we ever know our husbands, our friends, or even ourselves?

Enjoyable read.

I read some reviews thinking that this book glorified, or encouraged cheating, and affairs; but those reviewers clearly did not finish the book. In no way, does it encourage or glamorize affairs. If anything, it’s the opposite. It’s initial dip of the toe, does make it sound like it’s something that is exciting, new, and can even “save a marriage” (as one character claimed); but the book goes on to highlight the painful, far casting ripple effect, that having an affair can cause.
As the rape goes; I think that also, was misunderstood, by some reviewers. There are many, many women and girls who experience that same kind of reaction to an incident, like the one told in the book. Not calling it rape outright, does not lessen the tremendous guilt and burden. And in situations similar to those set up in the book, they do cast confusion, doubt, and bewilderment, over exactly what did happened.
Overall, I enjoyed the characters in the book. It was a pleasant read, with no major climactic, cliff hangers. Just a book, about people, intertwined by life.
