Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

Publisher's Summary

"My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died...."

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all - she's an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia - or each other - but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.

Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses - and, ultimately, ourselves.

    Story
    "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale..."

    The tale of lives that are going through their own trials, pain, and drama. Semi believable...and totally entertaining. I loved the character of the Tupperware selling mom. This story does make you think... Where would you draw the line of integrity when it comes to protecting your children or those you love.

    "Loved it!"

    This was a book that I didn't want to finish. I wanted it to go on and on. Liane Moriarty created characters that were unique but believable. This book was 3, maybe 4 stories that all tied together at the end. I laughed and cried over and over. The Husband's Secret ranks in my top 10 favorite books ever read.

    "Fantastic in Every Way"

    A very interesting and satisfying story of interwoven moral dilemmas. I thought that the narrator, Caroline Lee, did a perfect job. I admired so many of the small vocal moments in the way she chose to utter the lines.

    Story
    "Not the Secret You're Expecting"

    I finished this audiobook in record time - in about three days! It was that good!

    I bought this book with the idea that this was another book exploring the challenges of infidelity in marriages but it was so much more than that. The characters in Liane Moriarty's novel faced infidelity, tragedies, and the day to day hustle and bustle we call life. While she details the present day occurrences that her characters deal with, she also employs flashback in between, to describe the actual events of the ill-fated day. My mouth was left on the floor by the time I finished listening!

    I'm not sure why there are people who dislike this book so much because it had me from the first word! It was very fast paced and energetic. I definitely say to give it a try!

    Story
    "A strange love story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really. An overly long fairly boring and predictable book


    What could Liane Moriarty have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't think anything could have been done, subject content wasn't interesting for me


    What didn’t you like about Caroline Lee’s performance?

    The fact that she was so totally wrapped up in her perfect life and didn't want her boat rocked.


    Was The Husband's Secret worth the listening time?

    Yes, it was worth the listening time, because if I had to actually read the book, I would have given up.


    Any additional comments?

    Not my type of literature

    Story
    "So Good, So Intricate, I did not want it to end"

    I actually started this after some major surgeries. I was 3/4 of the way through, but, realized I had been getting the families and marriages mixed up. It was so good and I knew my confusion was mostly due all the medications I was taking. Sure enough, as my head cleared the major characters', and their dilemmas', anger, bitterness, lust, and delightfully fully captured children, drew me in, as surely as they were my own friends and families..

    Thank you for such a great book and the narrator was so wonderfully able to convey the voices of all the adult's' nuances, as well as all the children, even one with an endearing lisp.

    Story
    "Audible only downloaded books 2 & 3"
    Would you try another book from Liane Moriarty and/or Caroline Lee?

    What a waste of time. I spent one of my credits & was only able to load books 2 & 3. How can you listen to a book in the middle. This has been happening often with Audible. Is it a function of its having been bought by Amazon? In any event don't buy this book unless you want to waste a credit.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing unless Audible fixes this problem.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Make sure that his book could be listened to, in its complete length.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    How can I tell until I can read the complete book -- Thanks Audible! :-(


    Any additional comments?

    What a waste of time.

    "Wonderful Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book perfectly explores the topics of guilt, uncertainty and hurt the characters are experiencing.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    The narrator is wonderful and very expressive. I really loved the performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story is moving from its very beginning till the very end and so it would be difficult to pinpoint just one particular moment.

    "Yuck"
    What did you like best about The Husband's Secret? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed hearing the Australian accent and how English words are pronounced. I felt the story was too contrived and I predicted the entire thing. I didn't feel any of the characters had any depth or interest.
