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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Un put down able! Excellent! Great characters, thought provoking plot and extremely unexpected events.. I hated for it to end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was encouraged to read this book by a friend who raved about it. I was not impressed with the writing at all. Good story but the characters lacked any depth. They were like cardboard cut-outs. Even in the last few chapters I didn't really relate to which housewife I was reading about. Pity, as the story had so many great opportunities for the reader to be completely engrossed in the intrigue but I found I didn't really care about the characters at all. Too bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unexpected The great "reveal" from the mysterious letter summarized on the jacket of the book was unexpected. I enjoyed all of the characters. I especially enjoyed how the author apportioned blame, at least notionally, even to those who might otherwise seem like the victim. It made me think, but it didn't "decide" any of the issues for me. I found I kept wanting to read more to see which turns the characters took next. The three parallel storylines interwined nicely, and the ending was satisfying. A recommended read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly wonderful! This book caught my eye while I was walking in the book store and I am so thrilled to have read it. The author does an extraordinary job of making you fall in love with the characters; I could not put the book down! This book will make you question whether there is a ''big picture'' in this world and how actions truly affect others. If you enjoy a book that keeps you guessing but that is still considered light reading, I highly recommend this book! You will not regret it, it is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't read this book if you want to eat or sleep for the next couple of days! I received an Indigo gift card for Christmas and after reading about this book on a online book club (A Bow Full of Lemons). I decided to purchase it on Boxing Day. It arrived on Jan 7 and I read it in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down! I loved the authour's use of metaphors/similies and how the stories all inter-related. I kept hoping the ending wouldn't dissapoint, and it didn't! This is the best book I have read in a very long time. You MUST read it too!
