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.

  • Michele Ruiz

    I would never had read or listened to this book if not for the overwhelming number of great reviews. Great listen that will make you comment out loud.

  • Michael cosens

    More than I expected it was terrific! The narrator was very articulate and enthusiastic making each character special. The book was easy to follow and kept my attention.

  • Laura Cochran

    I loved this! Great intertwined stories and the narrator is exceptional!

  • Paula Emeigh

    This was so much better then I expected it to be, from the excellent narration to the story line. Without giving anything away you might think by the title that it might be a secret of infidelity. What turns out to be pretty early on the revelation of his secret isn't the most important part of the story, but how it all ties in together and the decisions that have to be made once it's revealed. Definitely worth listening to or reading!

  • Donna Malacina

    The Husband\'s Secret, was a great read. What a twist at the end! A must read or audio book it. Which is what I did. The narration was great. Same narrator that did BIG LITTLE LIES, I believe, worth spending the money on.

    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.
