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.

    "The Husband's Secret"
    What did you like best about The Husband's Secret? What did you like least?

    After many chapters of finally getting into the audio I enjoyed the stories of all the families and how they intertwined. There was a surprise of who killed Rachel and I found it to be well written.

    I did not like the narration.


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    I can't compare to another book.


    What three words best describe Caroline Lee’s performance?

    Not fond of narration


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    It took too many chapters to get into the book. Had it not been audio I might have not read. Once I got to the middle it was interesting then I wanted to keep listening and wanted the author to go on more with the book. It has potential for a series. The epilogue was superb!

    If you could sum up The Husband's Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Absolutely unpredictable and entertaining...


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

    The ending was a complete turnaround.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    I'm not big on accented narrators, but she was excellent....


    If you could rename The Husband's Secret, what would you call it?

    Everybody Has A Secret....Not Just the Husband!!

    "Easy to understand, enjoyable read"

    I enjoy books that make sense from the first paragraph. This is one of these kinds of books. A few twists that kept in interesting until the very end.

    Story
    "How one man's mistake/secret alters many lives."
    Would you listen to The Husband's Secret again? Why?

    No, because I read the book first & liked it so I wanted to hear it with Australian accents. It's a good story with a good reader.


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    Maybe Kate Atkinson's Case histories. Both have wonderful readers and a secret that changes many other lives.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    Cecilia Fitzpatrick -pretty much the main character.


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

    When Cecilia's daughter is injured.


    Any additional comments?

    Just how a lie or secret can be so damaging later.

    "Very Good"

    Best book I've listened to in quite some time. I absolutely LOVED the narrator, Caroline Lee. That woman can tell a story!


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    "slow start, but worth the wait"

    I keep forgetting to preview the book. Narrators can make or break a book. I was initially turned off by this narrator, but kept listening. At first, it's hard to keep up with the different characters and to understand how they are related. Actually, that's what makes it a good book; you don't see how it's all coming together ahead of time. I hate books that are too predictable. This book is a solid 4 stars.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Lee’s performances?

    Voices were horrible....


    Could you see The Husband's Secret being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Oh, I could, there's a bunch of like nonsense on TV right now

    "Definitely and unexpected secret"
    If you could sum up The Husband's Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting
    Suspenseful
    Chilling


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    The only book that comes to mind is a book I listened to recently called. 'The Last Letter from Your Lover'. I picked this book because it too has a mysterious element and a few surprises as well.


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my first book narrated by Caroline Lee.


    If you could take any character from The Husband's Secret out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I don't know if I would want to have dinner with any of them. The book did not leave me with questions about one particular character. Well maybe one, the dead girl. I would want to know what were her intentions that night and why did she feel the need to meet.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a good story very interesting and again I have to say I have liked all of Liane Moriarty's books. I am looking forward to new releases from her.

    Would you listen to The Husband's Secret again? Why?

    Amazing read! I could not put this one down. Great way of going from one character to another and in the end being able to see how they all intertwine together.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end was my favorite, what would of happened if? If only they had chosen this...

    I would consider listening to the Husband's Secret for all the nuances I know I missed.
