"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)
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.
I can't compare to another book.
Not fond of narration
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!
Absolutely unpredictable and entertaining...
The ending was a complete turnaround.
I'm not big on accented narrators, but she was excellent....
Everybody Has A Secret....Not Just the Husband!!
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.
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.
Maybe Kate Atkinson's Case histories. Both have wonderful readers and a secret that changes many other lives.
Cecilia Fitzpatrick -pretty much the main character.
When Cecilia's daughter is injured.
Just how a lie or secret can be so damaging later.
Best book I've listened to in quite some time. I absolutely LOVED the narrator, Caroline Lee. That woman can tell a story!
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.
Voices were horrible....
Oh, I could, there's a bunch of like nonsense on TV right now
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.
No this was my first book narrated by Caroline Lee.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Made me question my own relationships....
Although it is set in Australia! It might have been in any suburb.
