The Husband's Secret

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....

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.

    "Not what I expected but still an enjoyable listen"

    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.

    "Favorite Moriarty book so far!"

    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.
