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.

Great book5 star

Was a little slow in the beginning for me but picked up shortly after first chapter..great read! Couldn't out it down. 55

Could be shorter

Overrated2 star

I bought this book expecting a lot more. It's decent but I think it's highly overrated. I think the author was trying too hard to intertwine the storylines and make them all come together in a dramatic way and spent way too much time on boring details, then the last few chapters crams it all together. Disappointed in this purchase- Gillian Flynns books are a million times better. 25

Melodramatic start, but....4 star

Almost put this book down without finishing, as the beginning was a bit like a soap opera - definitely not my style. Persevered because I was reading it for book club and another member told me she nearly gave up, but ended up liking the book. Glad I stuck with it. Everything changes with the letter, and the story is then well worth finishing. 45


Boring and predictable2 star

I'm surprised this book is a best seller, it hardly kept my attention. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I gave it two stars because I enjoyed the epilogue. 25
