THE #1 NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER One of the Best Books of the Year Entertainment Weekly One of theTop Ten Books of the Year PeoplemagazineAt 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 quote

Praise for The Husband's Secret The Husband's Secretis 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. 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.
