"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 loved Big Little Lies and decided I would try the Husband's Secret. So glad I did. Her novels are so well written. She really makes you understand the characters and gets to the emotions and conflicts we all face. I especially liked the Epilogue. I often wonder what would have happened had I made different choices or hadn't been late for an appointment. Can't wait for the next Moriarity!
Audible is my cleaning and driving buddy.
I enjoyed this book from start to finish.
If you're on the fence, don't be, read it!
It's a great picture of suburbia and what we see versus what is. I am a mom, a wife and I used to be a teacher and I loved it.
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.
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!
I loved this from beginning to end! The narration was perfect as well! Can't wait to check out her other books! Bravo!
