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.

    "Saved by the performer"

    If not for the wonderful reading, I would've given up on this book three hours into the story. I didn't quite see the ending coming but I did. It's a familiar "Lifetime" story saved by a beautiful reader.

    "Amazing complex and entertaining"

    The character development is so deep and incredible, that you seem to truly know each character's next move, not that the novel is predictable. The epilogue is truly compelling and worth sticking around to the end to hear.

    Story
    "An Easy read. Nothing extraordinary"
    If you could sum up The Husband's Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Pandora Box Predictable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character would have to have been Mrs. Crowley. She had suffered a tragic event in life, survived and decided to take matters into her own hands although she was terribly wrong she ended up unknowingly being right in seeking vindication.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    She was decent. I like her change in intonation


    If you could take any character from The Husband's Secret out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    John Paul. I would like to know why he would have left the note in the first place with the possibility of it being found. Also, I would like to know if he felt in any way relieved after the accident because he had somehow repaid the Crowley family.

    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.

    "Good but a bit too fluffy"

    I really liked this book. However, I will say that I did find myself skipping over some parts because it seemed as if it took forever for the end goals to be met.

    "Exceptional story and narration"

    One of the best books I've ever listened to.
    Story line was compelling but the character development is what drove the book home for me. There were so many HUMAN layers to each woman...it made me feel like I was experiencing each moment with each character. Their flaws just made them more relatable, and thus likable.
    The author's intertwining of their lives was brilliant. It DID start off slow for me, but suddenly I could not stop listening and I will probably come back to it more than once.

    Story
    "So much awesomeness!"
    What did you love best about The Husband's Secret?

    The story began so quickly and it didn't stop - not even in the epilogue. From the first word to the last I was totally entertained, engaged and pleasantly suprised!


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    None. It stands alone. This book was really good and this author is becoming my favorite!


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    Tess.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Husband's Secret and why?

    Janie.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a good book that is written by a talented author who doesn't cover up his/her lack of talent with language, sex or predictable plotting - then this is your book! All other authors in this genre should be ranked up against this author.
