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.

    I loved this book. What a great story--lots of good twists. After it was over, I wanted to think of the issues raised and wished I could discuss with someone. Very thought provoking. The narration was excellent.

  • Karmen Palmer

    Beautifully done and deliciously twisted. I have yet to go wrong when choosing this author.

  • bonnie Mansfield

    Liane Moriarty is one of my favorite authors. Her books are funny and she draws you into the character's lives. Caroline Lee was exceptional.

  • Stacey Williams

    This book was \"good\" but not great. It took nearly 40 chapters to get to the thrills. And then another 15 chapters thereafter to get to the good stuff. The first 15 chapters are spent giving over amounts of details to too many characters, that ultimately were not part of the story once well into the book. My best description is it was too detailed with too many chapters.. 54 chapters plus an epilogue. I found the epilogue the best part!! Narrator was ok, weak voice, it would have been better to have more than one narrator I think

  • Cheeyein Yang

    The story-line reminded me of what I'd see in a season of Desperate Housewives. Brilliantly written, you'll definitely come back for more. The narrator's voice and accent suit the characters and setting. I enjoyed it!

  • Makenzie Erker

    Simply amazing! I love the twists and interconnected relationships.

  • Nicole VanNieuwenhoven

    I liked the book. The author kept it moving and would end the chapters just as it got interesting and to keep one coming back for more. It is a story of how 3 different lives intertwine and makes you wonder how other people perceive you. I thought the narrator did an excellent job of distinguishing the different characters.

  • Tanika Smith

    Not bad. Interesting twists and characters. I bet it would have been better if I had read it opposed to listening to it. The narrator\'s voice was mousey and whiny most of the time. I should have just read the book.

  • Onna Maynor

    Good book with lots of twists. Interactions of three different families. At the end you asked yourself what if?????!?

  • Lisa Villa

    I loved this book! I was hooked from the beginning! The author created wonderful characters with depth, humor and great understanding of their emotions when faced with the twists and turns of the plot ( which was oh so intriguing). I also loved the reader, the characters really sprang to life through her voice. I was so impressed I downloaded another book \"Big Little Lies\" by the same author and reader and am loving it just as much!
