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.

    Story
    "Surprisingly Good"

    The story started out slow and it took me 3 days of listening to it for only 20-40 minutes each time to actually get into the story. Once I did I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it and that it kept my interest. I enjoy reading and listening to books. This is one that audio was definitely the best way to go since it was slow at the beginning.

    Story
    "Won't Read Anything Else by This Author"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I found the narrator to be annoyingly whiney... I am not sure if it was the inflection or the accent, but I became increasingly irritated each time I listened.


    What was most disappointing about Liane Moriarty’s story?

    Three stories braided together is nothing new and the author didn't do a great job of the Tess/Will/Conner plot line -- there are too many people/characters and it is hard to keep track of all of the since they are all too similar -- I was well past the half way point before really figuring out who all of the characters were and in the end the Tess/Will/Conner plot line added nothing to the story that couldn't have been fixed with a different storyline.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Lee’s performances?

    No, sorry, I did not enjoy this reader.


    What character would you cut from The Husband's Secret?

    Tess/Will/Felicity/Conner/ All of Ceila's children except for Polly... way too many secondary characters.

    "Great story, but performance feels rushed"

    Loved the book, but in places the narrator was speaking so fast it almost felt like there was a mistake with the speed of the recording.

    "Great story and weaving of characters."

    If you like Kate Morton books, this is up your alley. It explores humanities truth in tragedy and marriage.

    "Great twist and turns!"

    This is probably my favorite book by this author. Facebook hack some of the best twists and turns that she's written so far. Very captivating, great story and fantastic ending. A definite read for every woman.
