HUSBAND'S SECRET to find out.
Tess returns to Sydney using the excuse that she is there to
mother who has fallen and is in a wheelchair. But that is
the furthest thing
from the truth. Her husband Will has told her a big secret

THE HUSBAND'S SECRET was a very quick read for me and I felt
was on an emotional roller coaster. You won't be able to
stop reading once
you start. I was flipping the pages like crazy because I
wanted to know
how it was all going to end. Who was going to find out the
Were the secrets ever going to be told? Each time I thought
I knew where
the story was going, I was thrown in the opposite direction.
This is the type
of novel that will certainly attract a wide variety of
readers: those who love a
great mystery, some romance, relationship issues/infidelity,
murder, etc. This is an excellent pick for book clubs, women
the individual reader that wants a book to dive into. Oh,
what a tangled
web we weave........so many big secrets. This is my first
novel and I certainly plan on reading more. The best book I
have read in
2014 so far.
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.
