"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 liked how the separate families were so intertwined, but you don't realize it until the end.
A certain warmth in her characters.
I teared up when the mother was contemplating how to tell her daughter that she had lost an arm.
This was a pretty great book, but unfortunately "Big Little Lies" was the first Moriarty book I read and that one is amazing! Anything compared to how much I loved that book would pale in comparison.
A good book to read. Enjoyed the last part of the book, such intrigue was a pleasant surprise. Bravo!!
I enjoyed the story although it didn't end as I eanted, but ended realistically, possibly as expected. loved the reader's voice and accent
An intriguing story, interesting characters, a different location, good writing ... all combine to make a good read. Moriarity places her characters in impossible situations, makes them real, and demonstrates that life is often not at all what it seems to be. Judge not . . . I will look for more Moriarty.
