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.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Husband''s Secret “Who says beach reads can''t make you think? This classy romance does.” — People “ The Husband''s Secret  is a smart, thoughtful read… [a] lip-smacking and intelligently written novel.” — Entertainment Weekly “In The Husband''s Secret , Liane Moriarty has created a contemporary Pandora whose dilemma is spellbinding.  Shocking, complex and thought-provoking, this is a story reading groups will devour.  A knockout!" —Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author “I really enjoyed The Husband’s Secret , and raced right through it in two days. It’s a knowing, touching, and entertaining page-turner. What a wonderful writer—smart, wise, funny.” —Anne Lamott “ The Husband’s Secret would more rightly be classified as psychological suspense, beautifully rendered, with a structure that sustains and builds interest from beginning to end.” —Sue Grafton "Brilliant." —Sophia Hannah, international bestselling author of The Wrong Mother "Liane Moriarty ( What Alice Forgot ) is far more than the skillful writer of potboilers. Her compelling characters could be your friends and neighbors, nice and neurotic in equal doses. . . .
