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.

    "Entertaining story with a disappointing end."

    I really enjoyed the overall story although I was slightly disappointed in the ending. I don't feel that the wrap up with little tidbits about each character not knowing the alternate endings was necessary. It seemed rushed and bizarre. I did enjoy the way each group of characters lives intertwined and how the internal conflict of each of the main players was explored.

    "Caroline Lee does the best readings!"

    I enjoyed this book, although not as much as Moriarty's big little things, but it was still an excellent book with complex characters and interesting themes. Also, Caroline is a great reader!

    "Very good"

    Kept my interest the whole way through. Loved the epilogue. Would recommend this book. Some of the voices bothered me a bit but it didn't distract too badly.

    "Real life"

    This was a great story of what life really hands you. Nothing is ever as it seems and things don't always perfectly fall into place.

    "Good Book"

    Started out a little slow with the different stories, but got juicy when they all began to be related. Good book. A thinker.

    "Fabulous!"
    What did you love best about The Husband's Secret?

    I loved how the lives intertwined in ways you could not have even imagined for the 3 main women characters and their families. And I have never enjoyed an epilogue more. This book really shows you how life is all about choices, and with the different choices we make in our lives, our lives could go so many different ways. Excellent read!


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

    Definitely the hospital discussion between 2 of the main characters.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    She did a really good job of doing the different characters and getting you involved in the story.


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

    Can't choose just one!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book, which I read before Big Little Lies, but I liked Big Little Lies even better!

    "Amazing story!"

    This book was such a great read! In the beginning I was a little confused as to who all the characters were but you find out that they are all connected and boy what a connection they all have...just shocking! Loved the epilogue it sums everything up and loved the narrator! I can listen to her accent all day long :)
