The Husband's Secret

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.

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.

    "lives intertwined"

    enjoyed how the characters lives were intertwined in both good and bad ways. found the story very relatable and will be listening to more novels by Liane Moriarity. Thought Caroline Lee did a superb job reading throughout.

    Story
    "The ending makes the book, ties together."
    What did you love best about The Husband's Secret?

    I loved how everything tied together at the end quarter of the book. I loved how all of characters were realistic also, I could empathize with almost all of them!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was very happy with how the book ended. I liked the book the whole way through but I was concerned about how the stories were going to tie together and how the book would end but I was very happy with the conclusion and still surprised at how it ended.

    "Very Good Story"

    I really enjoyed the book. I kept listening to hear the story unfold. I drove down the street with my mouth wide open in disbelief many mornings.

    Story
    "Classic liane Moriarty"

    I enjoyed this book but I made the mistake of starting it directly after another book! I never give myself enough time! It's definitely a book that makes you think of possibilities and what ifs in life. I cried just a tiny bit, not too much! If you like Liane Moriarty then you will enjoy this book! She has an excellent talent for weaving little details in and out of the story line before tying it all up into a nice bow at the end!

    "I liked the twists"

    I very much enjoyed the twists. It was a fairly slow start, but once I got into it, I was pleased.

    Story
    "A big lie that snowballs"
    If you could sum up The Husband's Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Old secrets explode


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Husband's Secret?

    I liked best when Rachel remembered her daughter's younger years.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    She disappears into the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ... the effect on all around him

    "A little honesty goes a long way"

    A good story that is well written. She really captures the inner you and reminds us of the "butterfly effect " of the decisions we make. I enjoyed the reader.
