"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)
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.
Love Caroline Lee's voice and the way she brings the characters to life each in their unique way. Liane Moriarity develops characters with great humor and builds details, quirks, and personalities so that I visualize each one so well
Excellent story and reader is the best. Have listened to it twice already and it is on the top of my list for recommended reading!!!
The back cover describes a more suspenseful book that what was read. I like the epilogue best but the rest was just ok.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend to others. The boom made me think about different aspects of life and how secrets and whim form our paths. I gave the book 4 stars only because it does not measure up to the truly great writers like Wally Lamb and Diana Galbadon. Worth the time to listen to!!
A lot of "what ifs" in this story. I found myself debating a lot of moral issues and my beliefs about what is right & wrong.
The character development and twists within this story made it well worth my time. Excellent book!
I've really enjoyed listening to Carolyn Lee.
