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.

    "Wow!"

    Absolutely loved it!! Every thread was engaging, characters were made real by their detail and their flaws, and the glimpses in to "what would have been" were a perfect compliment to the storytelling and razor sharp - loved it all!!!!

    "My Favorite Liane Moriaty Yet"

    I literally gasped at times during this book. Was stunned by the ending. Thought this was one of Liane's best books to date. Could not put this one down. Delicious

    "Great narrator; awesome story"

    This is the second novel I've listened to by this author. The narrator is outstanding! The story and characters are so well-written, I truly enjoyed every minute of it.

    "You're as Sick as your Secrets"

    This is a good story. It makes you think about the meaning of justice, and whether or not one needs to be locked up for the victim to get it.

    Story
    "Will she ever get to her point?Will this ever end?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure.


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    None


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    Tess


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Husband's Secret?

    All of Rachel's scenes except of course the most important one.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was great, but overall the writing was just too wordy. My GOD we get it Liane Moriarty you graduated at the top of your literary class and won many awards but could you please just let one character get to the point? Could you please not boar me to death with foolish side thoughts and notes about irrelevant incidents? The characters issues were so interesting and real but they start to ramble on like 12 year old idiots making you want to choke each and every one of them. They all start to sound like Charlie Brown's Teacher...Waa, waa, waa, waa, waa.!!! Also why in the world was Rachel so boring and why did she have to remind us of her tragedy every other page? I get it, she was tormented but you need to make her Bat $#!+ crazy or just leave her out of it until she is really needed. Overall very good story.

    "Great Stories in this one..."

    During the first few chapters, I thought I might regret my purchase, but the story did not disappoint in the end. I'm so glad I stuck with it; great "listen". ;)

    "Awesome Read"

    The book itself was an amazing thrill ride into the lives of three women. The way their lives intersect and intertwine keeps you hooked and ready to hear more. The narration was fantastic. It really brought the story to life. I think I enjoyed hearing in this format better than if I would have read it on my own. The accent by the narrator was spot on!! I would definitely recommend.

    "Not Bad"

    I felt the major turning points and events in this story were too predictable making the novel seem too long. The characters were well developed and I continued to read just to see what their final outcomes would be.
    I would be willing to read more from this author.
