The Husband's Secret

Cover: 'The Husband's Secret'

Staff Review: "The Husband's Secret" by Liane Moriarty


The Husband's Secret is a fantastic read that makes you question how well you really know the people you are closest to. When Cecilia discovers a letter her husband wrote to her to be opened only after his death her whole world is changed. Within this letter, her husband reveals his deepest, darkest secret which has the potential to destroy Cecilia's whole family and the life she has built. What is surprising is that Cecilia finds and reads this letter while her husband is still alive. The author does an excellent job developing each character which made me as a reader feel very close to them and invested in their happiness. This is a very thought provoking and emotional novel that makes the reader contemplate the "what ifs" of life.
