"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)
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!
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.
This was a well written and compelling story with complex characters faced with complex challenges.
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!
Old secrets explode
I liked best when Rachel remembered her daughter's younger years.
She disappears into the characters.
... the effect on all around him
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.
All around a good story that held my interest. Characters were well formulated and believable. The characters' internal struggling and conflicts were believable making the story all the more interesting.
