"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 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!
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!
Definitely the hospital discussion between 2 of the main characters.
She did a really good job of doing the different characters and getting you involved in the story.
Can't choose just one!
I loved this book, which I read before Big Little Lies, but I liked Big Little Lies even better!
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 :)
