The Husband's Secret

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....

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.

    "The Husbands Secret"

    Interesting listen. The last hours are of course the best. Makes you wonder what your secrets and choices have done to your own path and others...will we ever know?

    Story
    "Should have read this before "Big Little Lies""
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the separate families were so intertwined, but you don't realize it until the end.


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A certain warmth in her characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I teared up when the mother was contemplating how to tell her daughter that she had lost an arm.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "This story is so dull and has no excitement."

    I could not get into this book. I really wanted to like this book, but the narrator and book itself is just dry and boring.

    Story
    "I will read Moriarty again"

    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.
