Diane Jenner is at her modest home preparing a meal to celebrate her Silver Wedding Anniversary for her hard-working husband’s return from work. Instead of seeing him walking through her front door, she meets two policemen who have come to advise her that her husband, Gareth has been involved in a helicopter crash. Having no clue why her husband could possibly have been in a helicopter, Diane feels comforted by the thought that the police must have made a mistake. It’s only when she arrives at the hospital she discovers that not only were they right, but that her husband has an entirely secret life apart from the one they’d been sharing for so long.
James North comforts his distraught daughter at the hospital. He’s waiting for news about his wife’s condition and can’t help suspecting that alcohol has something to do with her crashing the helicopter. When Diane arrives he slowly realizes that she is not the woman her husband has made her out to be. James has more than enough trouble in his life, from his exuberant wife and troubled daughter, to his kindly father-in-law and the last thing he expects is to be attracted to an angry, confused woman who has inadvertently entered his life and is expecting answers to so many questions.

As Diane slowly discovers the depths of her husband’s deceit, she realizes she has a lot of decisions to make, but there are more shocks in store than even Diane or James could have ever imagined. Somehow each has to find a way of making sense of their lives, whilst trying to work out how best to deal with what’s happened in a way that won’t hurt those closest to them even further.
I love Sue Moorcroft’s books and once I’d opened the cover of Want To Know A Secret, I did very little apart from sit and read from the beginning to the satisfying end.
