"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.

"In The Husband's Secret,, Liane Moriarty has created a contemporary Pandora whose dilemma is spellbinding. Shocking, complex and thought-provoking, this is a story reading groups will devour. A knockout!" (Emily Giffin, New York Times best-selling author)
As usual, this writer delivers a compelling story full of mystery and intrigue. The characters are so endearing and believable. Every woman has wondered at some time whether or not she knows the whole truth and whether or not she would want to know. This is the third book I've read by this author and enjoyed this one as much as the others!! Enjoy!
This book was good, but kind of slow! I figured out the story during the first half of the book and then it was just waiting around for everyone else to figure it out. I preferred Little Big Lies!
From this author
Narration was ok, just found it rambling and hard to keep my interest
this is the second book I've read by this author. I love the character development and the way the characters are all entwined. I enjoyed the epilogue for wrapping up the questions you didn't even know were unanswered.
The performance was exceptional. It was very easy to recognize each character.
loved it. might drag a bit in the middle, but has some real suspense and a twist. a good reader who differentiated character voices just enough.
Once I started, I couldn't put it down! The ending left me satisfied and complete. I can send my love to the characters, and carry them in my heart!
I love to listen to well-written, well-researched books. Time is too valuable to waste on anything less, not to mention our credits and $$$!
This book was so well written, paced, and narrated I'm hesitant to
begin a different author/narrator. I was reluctant to put it down while I was listening, but comforted knowing it was waiting for me on my phone ;). I highly recommend this one. Wow. What a GREAT story!!!
