Marital Secrets

That Summer by Jennifer Weiner speaks to any woman who has feelings about the #metoo movement.

Diana was only fifteen when a recent prep school graduate raped her while his friends stood by. At the time, she was working as a nanny to a family friend in Truro. The story explains her mental decline afterward. She is changed forever until she gets a second chance to go back and rebuild herself while staying in the same family friend’s smaller cottage.

Eventually, Diana finds love. This is when she hatches the plan to revisit her former attackers. For the main transgressor, she decides to befriend his wife first (also a Diana). This creates an interesting situation for wife Diana (known as Daisy). Daisy is starving for friendship and respect. Their new relationship will force her to analyze her marriage and her choices.
