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
    "Kept me entertained"

    The story, although not the most original, was still very entertaining and I can see how this could happen in real life. The narrator did a fantastic job giving each character life (which was not an easy task since there are many characters). It's a mystery but a drama as well. About how one tragedy can somehow connect and affect so many people and they have no idea that they are all in this one small world.

    The author crafted a fantastic story and interleaved the different strings beautifully. Her attention to the details of her characters is amazing. The reader did a great job of making you hear each character.

    "Heartbreaking"

    This story is both heartbreaking and triumphant. It challenges the reader to sit with uneasy resolutions, which I love. It will break your heart but restore your faith in humanity.

    "Good story - not too dark"
    What did you love best about The Husband's Secret?

    The characters. Even those you dislike end up redeeming themselves.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ironically, I guessed the plot twist, but I like being able to do that.


    What three words best describe Caroline Lee’s voice?

    OK unless she is trying to talk like a child


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    laugh at times


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator's attempt to talk in a child's voice was so annoying it almost ruined the book.
