"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)
Such a good story! So many lives changed because of one moment in time. It really makes you think about what could have been, what should have been, and what is.
Great interrelated plots. A little difficult to remember who's who at first, but gets easier. Excellent presentation. Easy to listen to.
My husband gets mad when I say I read a book that I listened to, so now I just say I "consumed" the book!
I loved the intermingling of all the different families and lives.
Perhaps similar to Kate Atkinson's book "Life After Life".
Great voice, easy to listen to. Ms. Lee was able to create distinct characters and overall was a joy to listen to.
Tess, I think she and I would get along well.
The end of this book really left me thinking about my own life and my choices. It seemed to drag on in some places, but I liked the way it all made sense in the end!
