"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)
Loved It! Captivating from the first chapter! Great story line! Was a little taken back in the beginning by the accent but as I continued it actually became endearing!.
Met all of my expectations and more! Very entertaining! Highly recommended! The characters are developed perfectly and I found myself thinking about them!
I have read two books by Liane Moriarty and loved both of them. She brings her character to life and the reader feels compassion for them as if they were part of your own life. Great wordsmith.
but as you go through the lives of ordinary Australian families, you will be amazed at what Love does.
After looking at the title, I intentionally tried not to listen to this book. In doing so, I prolonged the joy of listening to an intriguing, and capivating story.
I have loved all of Liane Moriarty's books. This one was no exception. She writes about husbands and wives who love each other and love their children. They go through dark times and difficulties but you can relate to her characters. I am always disappointed at the end because I want to hear more. Although she wraps up the story nicely I don't want it to end.
Another great story by Liane Moriarty. She describes events of life in such a way that gives texture to the experience if you are familiar and context if you are not.
The story unfolds slowly, and like an onion, peeling away layer and layer until each character is left raw and real. You think it's a story of unrelated characters, but as the book progresses you begin to see how incredibly intertwined their lives really are. You cannot stop listening!
I can only think to compare it to the other book by the same author that I've listened to, which is Big Little Lies. It has the same depth of character development and secrets that build upon themselves until a stunning finale.
The narrator brings the same energy and emotion to the story as a parent might reading a book to a child. The different voices, accents, and dialects that she gives to each character really helps the book come alive.
I would probably take Connor Whitby out to dinner. He seems pretty sexy, in my opinion.
This book is wonderful!
I loved " Big Little Lies" and "What Alice..' These tails all had great development and the ending though surprising did support the story.
With "the Husbands Secret" you are physically and psychologically drained at the end. If you can take the long and sometimes boring character descriptions and then enjoy the last 3 minutes then ok. But I could not and for that I would not recommend this book drained
Society follows their own right and wrong. They leave little value for others sorrows if it doesn't fit their description of what is purposeful.
