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
    "Fabulous!"
    What did you love best about The Husband's Secret?

    I loved how the lives intertwined in ways you could not have even imagined for the 3 main women characters and their families. And I have never enjoyed an epilogue more. This book really shows you how life is all about choices, and with the different choices we make in our lives, our lives could go so many different ways. Excellent read!


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

    Definitely the hospital discussion between 2 of the main characters.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    She did a really good job of doing the different characters and getting you involved in the story.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Husband's Secret and why?

    Can't choose just one!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book, which I read before Big Little Lies, but I liked Big Little Lies even better!

    "Amazing story!"

    This book was such a great read! In the beginning I was a little confused as to who all the characters were but you find out that they are all connected and boy what a connection they all have...just shocking! Loved the epilogue it sums everything up and loved the narrator! I can listen to her accent all day long :)

    "Not Liane's best, but stlll highly entertaining"

    Not Liane's best, but still highly entertaining and thought provoking. The characters come to life in a relatable and realistic way, but the story drags a bit as you wait preditably for everything and everyone to collide together.

    Story
    "Don't waste your time!"
    Would you try another book from Liane Moriarty and/or Caroline Lee?

    No, definitely not!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice is sharp and grating, her accent at times makes it difficult to understand what she is saying. Perhaps the book would have been OK without this reader's voice. Perhaps the reader would have been OK with a different book.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to request a refund of my credit. Sorry, won't purchase this author again. Once spoiled ...........

    "Ah the intrigue of a sealed envelope."

    This is a pretty good story. It wasn't as good as Little Bitty Lies but it was entertaining.
