"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 was expecting a one couple story and got a story that jumped between a variety of couples and individuals. A little confusing to start with but once I got to know the characters a little better it was a lot easier to follow. Might be easier to read than to listen to.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Husband's Secret. It was full of unexpected twists and kept me interested all throughout. I like all of Liane Moriarty's books but this one was exceptionally well written. And Caroline Lee was the perfect narrator. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
I can so identify with the characters. And I always wonder what happens after the story ends!
Loved everything about this! The story, the performance, EVERYTHING. It was interesting, funny, kept me guessing right to the end...I also especially love how it finishes. Left me with such a great feeling of completion. Nothing left to want...
Enjoyed it. Very thought provoking & unpredictable. Beautiful voice. Would have enjoyed more scenery. Head games all around. All about choices. Rated PG13 at least.
