"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)
Trite ....not worth my time. Will delete it from my library. Now I MUST WRITE 20 WORDS!!! ABOUT THIS TRASH
This is a beautifully written and thought provoking story that keeps you engaged right to the very end. It is dark and intense and leads down a winding path that does a great job of integrating the various lives created by distinct and not so distinct choices. The story is highlighted by a engaging and perfect narration.
Loved It! Captivating from the first chapter! Great story line! Was a little taken back in the beginning by the accent but as I continued it actually became endearing!.
Met all of my expectations and more! Very entertaining! Highly recommended! The characters are developed perfectly and I found myself thinking about them!

Great characters, intriguing story, loved how all the characters lives came together toward the end. I really enjoy Caroline Lee's narration, she does a beautiful job!
I have read two books by Liane Moriarty and loved both of them. She brings her character to life and the reader feels compassion for them as if they were part of your own life. Great wordsmith.
but as you go through the lives of ordinary Australian families, you will be amazed at what Love does.
After looking at the title, I intentionally tried not to listen to this book. In doing so, I prolonged the joy of listening to an intriguing, and capivating story.
I have loved all of Liane Moriarty's books. This one was no exception. She writes about husbands and wives who love each other and love their children. They go through dark times and difficulties but you can relate to her characters. I am always disappointed at the end because I want to hear more. Although she wraps up the story nicely I don't want it to end.
