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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better luck next time Aug. 3 2013
By Cee Ess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you've read "A Casual Vacancy" by JK Rowling, this book takes a similar storytelling path where several people and social issues collide. At 416 pages total, it's about 50 pages too long with unnecessary detail, poor editing and a grammar error at the beginning of chapter twelve (Kindle edition). As the title suggests there is a main secret (among others) that is revealed, but it's at an awkward, anticlimactic near midpoint making you wait a long time for outcome. This book lacked the character charm and wit of her other works, which was a disappointment. I hung in there for the sake of closure, but didn't like the ending.

I enjoyed the charm and wit of "What Alice Forgot" and "The Last Anniversary". I also liked the character development of the more serious "The Hypnotist's Love Story". All three of these were very good. "Best Wishes" was my least favourite (being too choppy), which is now tied with this one. Better luck next time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Sept. 8 2013
By lalto
Format:Hardcover
I've enjoyed Lianne Moriarty's other books and especially liked "What Alice Forgot." This book was a quick read, not hard to get into, but just not that interesting. At the heart of the novel is a wife's discovery of a letter from her husband to be opened in the event of his death. A big secret is revealed--but it takes until the middle of the book for the letter to be opened and then only a few words of the letter are revealed. It was a very long buildup. In the meantime only three characters are developed: the wife, an older woman named Rachel and a younger woman named Claire. The three strands of the story seemed mechanical to me. I read it in a day and a half at home with a cold, but can't say I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story Sept. 9 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was hard to get into but at the half way point it all comes together and takes off.
An amazing twist near the end brings it all to a satisfying conclusion.

Read this book for a book club, and was done in less than a week. With a busy life, I normally read exclusively on the subway to work and back, aside from weekends, but this book didn't leave my hands until it was finished.

The first portion of the book was a little difficult to get through, meeting the characters, learning their connections, and keeping track as the book moved between (clearly marked)points of view, but once the initial meeting was over, the book took off and soared. Amazing story of a small town, and the connection between women, and the secrets we keep. Excellent read, I've recommended it to everyone I know since reading it.

Rare these days...but awesome!! It's not often that you find that at the end of every chapter you can't wait for the next to begin.
