"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)
I have read this book, and the book "what Alice forgot", and have been very impressed by the complexity of the stories, belying the simple human emotions that she portrays so easily. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to become engrossed in a good story!
I was hooked from beginning to end. Not only has the writer given us an amazing, thought provoking story, the performance on audible is excellent. Wow.....this is one story I definitely recommend.
I've never been a huge fan of "chick flick" books but this book made you wonder about life's biggest mystery, "what could have been". You can sympathize with the characters easily, and can solve your own mystery and enjoy the story of how these 3 family's lives interlink.
How our lives, loves, hopes, and grief intertwine. This book also explores the conflicting emotions of marital commitment and parental love.
I listened to this right after listening to Big Little Lies, which I really enjoyed. This book lacked the humor and the witty dialogue and I found it predictable.
I didn't find any of the three main characters to be particularly compelling
"Wonderful book, with lots of little twists and turns. A mini history lesson sprinkled like spice throughout..."
I loved the intricate way the book was written. There were so many tie ins. I listened to the book while taking my daily walk. I could only listen to the book when I was exercising. It was a wonderful motivator. The reader was extraordinary. Thank you!
I loved this book! The interweaving of characters and storylines made it nearly impossible to hit the pause button to go to sleep. I found myself listening to the book during every spare moment.
The narrator was excellent and made the story more enjoyable than had I read it myself!
