"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)
Loved every minute of this! So glad I decided to listen to this. Caroline Lee was perfection and made the story come to life. I had a bit of trouble keeping all the characters straight, but after about 100 pages it hit easier. The epilogue was a masterpiece and I loved hearing about what might have been.
Once I started, I couldn't put it down! The ending left me satisfied and complete. I can send my love to the characters, and carry them in my heart!
I love to listen to well-written, well-researched books. Time is too valuable to waste on anything less, not to mention our credits and $$$!
This book was so well written, paced, and narrated I'm hesitant to
begin a different author/narrator. I was reluctant to put it down while I was listening, but comforted knowing it was waiting for me on my phone ;). I highly recommend this one. Wow. What a GREAT story!!!
I absolutely loved the writing style, the story has three main characters whose lives are simultaneously being told. At times there are simply parallels occurring that tie the three together and then there are points when their paths cross. The authors skill for character development allows the reader to understand the varying perspectives of the characters on an intimate level. There are a lot of characters which for the audible format (I listen during my commute) I was concerned about at first but this story quickly drew me in and I found it very easy to follow even with large spans of time between listening. I highly recommend this well written and entertaining book.

Love this author - always an interesting psychological study of issues women go through at every age ... but also compelling plots. I'm only sorry I've now read them all!
I love the what if symbolism of this book. It made me think a lot about life and the fact that what happens in it is dependent on so many things. I love books that make you think! Great read.
