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.

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.

    "Great listen"
    What made the experience of listening to The Husband's Secret the most enjoyable?

    All around a good story that held my interest. Characters were well formulated and believable. The characters' internal struggling and conflicts were believable making the story all the more interesting.

    "Loved it; could not put it down!"
    Would you listen to The Husband's Secret again? Why?

    Absolutely I will!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tess, so funny, so real. I havent ever been the Tess in a TWF triangle, but the writer made me imagine being her, and I felt that I would think and react just as she did.


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

    Tess. Caroline Lee made all three women come vividly to life, however; I felt Cecilia's bottom-dropped-out shock and Rachel's raw grief equally keenly thanks to her amazing performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud many times despite the subject matter, and cried a few tears listening during my daily commute.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Liane Moriarty book--and I was instantly hooked. I bought and listened to all five of her other novels in rapid succession. As audiobooks i have still never found their equal. The world--and especially Audible-hooked commuters--needs more Liane Moriarty!!

    "Good enough to keep my attention."

    While I dId finish this book, for me, it was a bit like mindless reading. Which is not to say that it was bad. It took my mind off of other thoughts at times; thereby keeping my attention. Sort of like going to see a movie that I know isn't full of stellar performances, but I enjoyed nonetheless.

    "Poor writing!"
    Would you try another book from Liane Moriarty and/or Caroline Lee?

    no


    Has The Husband's Secret turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    I couldn't stand her voice


    What character would you cut from The Husband's Secret?

    All


    Any additional comments?

    I had just listened to "The Prince of Tides" which is exquisitely written and narrated, a true work of art. Perhaps it wasn't fair to listen to this one right after. It seemed juvenile and ridiculous, I didn't finish it.

    "Excellent book"

    This seems on the surface to be a book without a lot of impact. However, the book is very deep and thought provoking. It makes one step back and look at the very ordinary details of ones life, and see the many ripples of seemingly inconsequential acts and decisions.
