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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "Liane Moriarty is my new favorite author"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the third book I've listened to by Liane Moriarty (the others were What Alice Forgot and The Hypnotist's Lover). There's something unique about her characters that makes me love them all. The dialogue is funny and authentic and endearing. Moriarty's insight into the lives of women surprises me at times and her portrayal of the fragile, yet strong relationships between the characters are so true to life and humorous and heartrending and ludicrous, just like in real life. I'm looking forward to the fourth! Oh, and I do hope they continue to be narrated by either Caroline Lee or Tamara Lovatt Smith. Maybe it's that magical Australian accent, but they are my favorite narrators on Audible.

    Story
    "Amazingly different than I expected."

    I've never been a huge fan of "chick flick" books but this book made you wonder about life's biggest mystery, "what could have been". You can sympathize with the characters easily, and can solve your own mystery and enjoy the story of how these 3 family's lives interlink.

    "Heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure."

    How our lives, loves, hopes, and grief intertwine. This book also explores the conflicting emotions of marital commitment and parental love.

    "This story is so dull and has no excitement."

    I could not get into this book. I really wanted to like this book, but the narrator and book itself is just dry and boring.

    Story
    "I will read Moriarty again"

    An intriguing story, interesting characters, a different location, good writing ... all combine to make a good read. Moriarity places her characters in impossible situations, makes them real, and demonstrates that life is often not at all what it seems to be. Judge not . . . I will look for more Moriarty.

    I liked Big Little Lies a little bit more. But the style story she writes is a fun listen. Must!

    Story
    "Ugh who cares?!?"

    Simply not that interesting and far too wordy. Lots of time spent on inconsequential characters. I was pretty irritated by the end.

    Story
    "Had greater expectations of a thriller"

    I kept waiting for something to happen. There were several separate stories going on, and I figured it was going to be all brought together at some grand point, and it was; but I was left thinking "that's it?"
