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.

    "Incredible Story "

    I recommend the book The Husband's Secret to the fullest extent possible. This book by Liane Moriarty explores some of the darker parts of life and how people think. This story is very tightly wound and alternates from 3 core sets of characters. The characters can be very lovable,maddening, and very real in a personal selfish way. I loved listening to this book, the narrator did a fine job, and I had to extend my trip to the gym an extra hour and a half when I got near the end it was not possible to put it down by that point.

    Story
    "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.

    "Fun easy read"

    This was my second Liana Moriarty book, both I listened to via Audible. The narrator is outstanding and the story was great. I’ll be reading more of Moriarty books.

    Story
    "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.
