At the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that’s not meant to be read

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.

    the ending was suprising. I do not usually read this type of book. But, I would highly recommend it for all women of a certain age.

  • Sharon Cairns This book was everything I've been wanting to read. SO good. The ending was crazy. The narrator did an excellent job as well. This book really makes you think and I love that. Such a good read!

  • Lisa Valerio

    Really enjoyed this book, makes you wonder how well you really know those you love. A secret like this tormented the guilty, the innocent and the ones who didn't know the truth... But knowing the truth is a heavy burden to carry. I wouldn't have been able to love a husband through something like this.

  • Elizabeth Bosque

  • Elizabeth Painter

  • Heather Payne

    Don\'t miss out on this book! What can I say that hasn\'t been said.. The characters are fun and full of life. You will soon find out what secrets they are keeping... We all have secrets. Should we share or keep them to ourselves? What would you do?

  • Rhonda Garietz
