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.

    Story
    "This book has it all!"
    Would you listen to The Husband's Secret again? Why?

    Yes. Fantastic job by the narrator!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Husband's Secret?

    Finding the letter.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    Everything! She was able to bring something unique to each character. Her voice is mesmerizing. Am really wishing she was the narrator in What Alice Forgot!


    Who was the most memorable character of The Husband's Secret and why?

    They were all memorable, but I had the strongest reaction to Tess because her thoughts and actions seemed so raw and exposed.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has it all and will make your heart ache and your mind wander in ways you don't expect.....what character will you relate to and which of your hidden fears will be exposed?

    Story
    "Great twists and turns!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Husband's Secret the most enjoyable?

    Several things made listening to The Husband's Secret enjoyable. 1. I liked the way the story lines of the three main characters were intertwined but the interaction with one another is that of acquaintances. 2. I liked the way an event impacted each character's life. 3.. Listening to Caroline Lee use her voice to distinguish the different characters. 4. I loved the way all the loose ends were all tied up in the epilogue.


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    I think The Husband's Secret could be compared to The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton because of how one event changes the course of several lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are so many scenes that come to mind...................


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

    No extreme reaction but I did have some anxiety.


    Any additional comments?

    I found myself making predictions that had to be changed over and over.

    "Worth the read -"

    I think Caroline Lee is a fantastic performer - she is a significant contribution to every book I've heard her perform.

    As to this book - I love the complex story and overlapping lives of the well-developed characters. And then the 'secret' was disclosed & I almost stopped listening but I encourage you to keep going - the end weaves it together in a way that makes it very satisfying.

    Well work the read.

    First time and she was wonderful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Any additional comments?

    I. Normally listen to light hearted stories of young women coming into their own. As a arrived woman of 15 years, this story hit home in a trials and tribulations sort of way, that has touched me. I'd forgotten how good books could truly sweep you in,

    I enjoy novels where the stories of multiple families are told and then as the novel progresses various points of intersection are revealed. Overall an enjoyable read.

    "Ponderously slow..."

    The story was extremely slow for the first 3/4 of the book, but it did start to pick up during the final 2 hours. It was not as enjoyable as I'd hoped.
