When reading "The Husband's Secret"I found myself sharing Cecilia's conflict; part of me wanted a quick reveal of the letter and then a lengthy afternath, but the other part enjoyed the drawn out angst. As the writer, what was your decision-making process on when to release us from the grip of cognitive dissonance and begin with the parceling out of the repercussions.
That was very tricky and some people thought I got it right, and others thought I got it wrong, so I don't know, I guess I just followed my instincts. I know at least one reader who couldn't bear it and skipped ahead. Looking at it now, I wonder if it was just one chapter too long before the reveal, but I don't know..
