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.

    "Makes you think!"

    What a great book! I love all the twists and turns. It really makes you think about the chain reactions that happen every time you make a decision. The ripple effect.

    "Fantastic ending"

    A little hard to follow until I learned the characters due to several families stories being told at the same time. After "getting it". It was hard to keep away from because I was do anxious to hear what happened next. The ending( under any circumstances, do not allow yourself to read it until the very end or it will ruin so much for you) completely took the whole book to a new amazing level.

    "Secrets affect more than you expect"

    Very well written. I loved how the three stories intertwined. I loved the 'what if's and the secrets they all held on to. Loved the Australian dialect. Definitely a must read for everyone. Caroline Lee did a great job with her narration.

    Story
    "Liane Moriarity is now my favorite author"

    I loved Big Little Lies and decided I would try the Husband's Secret. So glad I did. Her novels are so well written. She really makes you understand the characters and gets to the emotions and conflicts we all face. I especially liked the Epilogue. I often wonder what would have happened had I made different choices or hadn't been late for an appointment. Can't wait for the next Moriarity!

    "Must read!"

    I enjoyed this book from start to finish.
    If you're on the fence, don't be, read it!
    It's a great picture of suburbia and what we see versus what is. I am a mom, a wife and I used to be a teacher and I loved it.

    "Good book if you like the "F" word"

    I love the reader, liked the story! I just find it is sad a writer feels he or she needs to use filthy language to get a point across.

    "Social suspense thriller"

    Love her writing, pace, interest, suspense, connection to reality. That is all and enough - you'll be glad you read or listened
