The #1 New York Times Bestseller

One of the Best Books of the Year Entertainment Weekly

One of the Top Ten Books of the Year People magazine

“It’s a knowing, touching, and entertaining page-turner. What a wonderful writer—smart, wise, funny.” —Anne Lamott

"The Husband's Secret is so good, you won't be able to keep it to yourself." —USA Today

“Shocking, complex and thought-provoking, this is a story reading groups will devour.  A knockout!" —Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author

“Emotionally astute, immensely smart, and as cinematically plotted as any Tom Perrotta Novel destined for critical accolades and a big-screen adaptation.” —Entertainment Weekly

“A novel that’s perfect for vacation reading.” —People

"Brilliant." —Sophia Hannah, international bestselling author of The Wrong Mother 


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.

Review



Praise for The Husband's Secret  -  An Amazon and iBooks Best of 2013 Pick 



The Husband's Secret is a smart, thoughtful read… [a] lip-smacking and intelligently written novel.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“Who says beach reads can't make you think? This classy romance does.” —People
 
“Moriarty may be an edgier, more provocative and bolder successor to Maeve Binchy.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
“[A] multi-layered page-turner…The ultimate page-turner. … I devoured it in one deliciously unfettered day, unable to stop reading … Moriarty capably handles her cast of characters, weaving their stories together into a fascinating tapestry… No reader will manage to resist plunging onward.” —BookReporter.com

 “Amid three intertwined story lines and terrific plot twists, Moriarty presents a nuanced and moving portrait of the meaning of love, both marital and familial, and how life can hinge on a misunderstanding or a decision made in haste. The Husband’s Secret is so good, you won’t be able to keep it to yourself.” —USA Today

 “For a provocative page-turner, read The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty.”—Woman’s World
 
“The genius of The Husband’s Secret is that it makes us start to wonder what in our own lives would—or would not—have happened if, say, we had waited just five more minutes before we walked out the door, had not said that hurtful thing, had applied a bit of logic to that situation.” —Bookpage
 
“Reading groups rejoice. This meaty novel from the bestselling author (The Hypnotist’s Love Story, What Alice Forgot) will probably land on many must-read lists.” —Dallas-Fort Worth Star-Telegram
 
“Simultaneously a page-turner and a book one has to put down occasionally to think about and absorb, Moriarty’s novel challenges the reader as well as her characters, but in the best possible way.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Weaving stories from multiple perspectives keeps this one interesting all while leaving the reader wondering what will happen next. This great summer read is hard to put down.”—Library Journal

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.
