The Husband's Secret

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

Narrated by Caroline Lee

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.

This was a good book and at times an emotional read. It is at times a very sad story and while I did enjoy it, I felt that there were too many characters. Also, for me there was too much going on at once and I had a little bit of trouble keeping everyone straight in my mind (which could have been me more than the book).

But when we learned the husband’s secret I was flabbergasted! Would have never suspected that was what his secret was, and then the book took a “wow” turn, getting more real and there were a few more smaller things that happened that surprised me.

Overall I enjoyed this book and would read more from this author. The narrator did a great job.
