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.

Critic Reviews

"In The Husband's Secret,, Liane Moriarty has created a contemporary Pandora whose dilemma is spellbinding. Shocking, complex and thought-provoking, this is a story reading groups will devour. A knockout!" (Emily Giffin, New York Times best-selling author)

My First Audible Book

This was my first Audible book and after reading the reviews I decided to jump right in. Great story!! The narrator was wonderful!! And I especially loved the epilogue. If all of my experiences on Audible are this good, I'll be a happy customer.

Great listen

Good narration. I have become mildly obsessed with this author’s stories. This is my 3rd if her audiobooks in less than 2 months. I like the storytelling and narration. Try to listen to “What Alice Forgot” as well. That one is my fav so far.

Gets old fast

There’s only so much one can take before it gets to be too plodding and obvious. Not nearly as good as some of her others.

Didn't finish it.

I couldn't get through this book. I'm not sure why. I tried to listen but it just droned on and, eventually, I put it down for good. Other people have given it rave reviews but I want a fast-paced audio-book and this wasn't it.

Twist and Turns

I didn't start getting into the book until chapter 9. The story hops back and forth between different families. I will say I'm glad I kept on reading because it had many shocking moments that kept me captivated. Many Twist and Turns! Good read!

Not as good as Big Little Lies

I bought this book because I was obsessed with Big Little Lies, but for some reason I just couldn’t stay committed to this story. It was truly quite entertaining. It’s the kind of book that is perfect for the beach.
