"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)
What was the point of this character? From what I can tell, she was only needed to get Connor in the "right" place at the right time for Rachel to do what she did. If that's the case, why did we need her whole backstory. It had no real connection to the main storyline. Anyone else confused by this?
This is the second audible I have GREATLY enjoyed by Liane Moriarty. The first being "Little Big Lies". They both caused me to think how our choices and lies effect our lives in ways we will ever know. How we assume the way our lives would go or would have gone because of certain choices or situations, yet we truly do not know.
I really enjoyed this book. The point of views from the three main characters made a circle complete. My only regret is that I would have liked more of the little girls characters.
Very engaging. Wonderfully written and a beautiful performance. Would definitely recommend it. Just stick with it - it's great
Enjoyed the satisfying intermingling of the characters lives to create an easy to read . I cherished something about each character,very ordinary people colliding towards an extraordinary ending. The epilogue was the chuckle I needed to close the book completely content.
