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.

    "Things that make you go hmmmmmm"

    The end of this book really left me thinking about my own life and my choices. It seemed to drag on in some places, but I liked the way it all made sense in the end!

    Story
    "LOVED it!"
    What did you love best about The Husband's Secret?

    Liane Moriarty always delivers. It's not just the secret, which is unexpected, but what comes after. Loved the way she treated the issues that it unraveled.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's so hard to choose... I think what I like best is the way Moriarty looks at one event through different people.


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Australian accent reminded me that the story was set in Austrialia, with the little details that make the setting of a story special and unique.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The price of curiosity


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended.

    "Great plot, needs more editing"

    The plot and reader were great. I thought it dragged in spots and could have used tighter editing. Still worth a sale credit.

    "Dark and Thought Provoking"

    This is a beautifully written and thought provoking story that keeps you engaged right to the very end. It is dark and intense and leads down a winding path that does a great job of integrating the various lives created by distinct and not so distinct choices. The story is highlighted by a engaging and perfect narration.

    "Great!"

    Loved It! Captivating from the first chapter! Great story line! Was a little taken back in the beginning by the accent but as I continued it actually became endearing!.
