"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)
Though it started out just a little slow I adored this book. The narrator is brilliant and Liane Moriarty once again manages to once again allow me a wonderful world of escape along with an intriguing world of self evaluation. Her books always manage to resonate with me in an amazing way.
English teacher nerd, love books with character depth and a good plot, and enjoy almost any genre.
Cute and typical chick literature. Just a little unrealistic and forced. Great idea just not executed well. Bitterness is an over riding theme but devastation is an element that isn't well developed.
The story was incredible. Well written, relatable, the narrator was perfect. I thought this was a really great intertwining story that had been meticulously fitted together. There were great moments that were so relatable and is a story that makes us question our deeply held morals in light of circumstance.
I kept waiting for something to happen. There were several separate stories going on, and I figured it was going to be all brought together at some grand point, and it was; but I was left thinking "that's it?"
