At the heart of The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty is a letter that's not meant to be read…

My Darling Cecilia, if you're reading this, then I've died…

Imagine 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 too. 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 business woman, 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.

Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, or anyone who enjoyed One Moment, One Morning or The Midwife's Confession, The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty is about the things we know, the things we don't, and whether or not we ever get to choose. Above all, though, it's about how we must live with the consequences of our actions – whether we like it or not.

Happily, I was not disappointed

 on 10 July 2016

This book was published in 2013, during my reading slump, but I remember seeing it everywhere. So when it was in a Kindle sale recently I was quick to snap up a copy. With over 4,000 reviews on Amazon and so many of Liane Moriarty’s other novels constantly topping the charts, I had high expectations of the book. Happily, I was not disappointed. I read this book in 24 hours, so it’s fair to say I was gripped.

Enjoyed it – going to buy more by the author

Flowing, well written, easy to read. Not a clumsy sentence in the whole book, It’s easy to imagine the characters as real people and understand why they behave as they do, even though you may not agree with them.

What a great start to the new year

This was a book I kept seeing everywhere but avoided buying but it was drastically reduced on kindle so I took the plunge and am I glad I did. To be honest though thinking back to the beginning of the book I did think I’d made a mistake as the start did confuse me as it starts with cecilia who is super mum and Tupperware party queen hostess and her husband whose letter she finds in the attic to be opened only on his death and then it jumps to tess whose best friend and cousin she has just been told is in love with her husband and he with her so leaves to live with her mother and the story then jumps to Rachel whose teenage daughter was murdered years ago. The story flitted between these three main characters a lot and it was only until I was 10% into the book I could identify with them separately. The story is great and I couldn’t put it down!! I liked how all the characters had implications on each other’s lives without perhaps knowing.The ending was one of the best I’ve read so far concluding a lot of what is generally forgotten about in other books.

An easy to read best-seller

 on 10 September 2015

You got to hand it to Liane Moriarty, she can turn an article inspired idea into a best-seller. Originally inspired by an article that Liane had read about people who made all sorts of on the deathbed confessions including a murder confession from an individual who then survived his stroke and ended up in jail. The main plot of Husband’s Secret gravitates around married with kids Cecilia who finds a letter hidden in the attic with an intriguing ‘To be open only in case of my death’ description written on the envelope. The book also follows stories of Rachel – a mother who’s teenage daughter was murdered years ago ( which is major hint to the reader of what the letter contains) and Tess – a woman who’s husband had an affair with her best friend. Although the ‘secret’ is quiet predictable the ending is not, especially when questioning whether the husband will and should go to jail (considering the damage that the truth can cause to Cecilia’s family and the town’s community). The book is well written and very easy and quick to read. I do recommend it.

Seven days of Seismic Readjustments

Powerfully grabbing your attention with a story so dreadful you cannot imagine how the lives of those involved could ever repair, ‘The Husband’s Secret’ is the stuff of nightmares. Every day folk in Australia start out with dilemmas that are challenging but not life threatening, eventually escalating to a dreadful discovery which, rightly referred to as Pandora’s jar (box?), cannot be put back again.

I don,t normal write book reviews but thought i would about this book. First i knew what was going to happen as soon as i read about the letter it was pretty obvious well to me anyway but then i do watch a lot of crime show,s so thats probably why.

Not bad

 on 14 January 2018
By JH
Took me a whole 12 months to read this book because I really struggled to get into it at first due to all the characters you were having to get to know switching in each chapter, but after putting down for a few months and having to reread the beginning I did finally finish it and generally it’s a really good enjoyable story but not a book I was gripped with like some.

what secret is in your cupboard of life?

 on 5 July 2014
By Tweedledum
What a roller coaster of emotion Liane Moriarty has unleashed in this book. She writes with a sure hand never missing or mistimimg the plot which rolls on like a force of nature. There are layers upon layers upon layers in this story which superficially appears to be something quite ordinary and turns out to be anything but. This is a book about love, and hate, and regret, and grief, and anger, and jealousy, and…..and. The whole gamut of human emotion is here washing through real characters like waves crashing on the beach of life. Moriarty describes the central character’s love for her husband as a deep seam of gold in her heart. The presence of this deep imperishable seam enables the couple to survive a storm that would surely have destroyed a family where this was not present. What should we do with our secrets? Moriarty encourages the reader to reflect deeply on this question.

A holiday novel – a page turning, easy read but very good with some big themes.

 on 17 August 2015
By Susan Glazier
This a holiday novel – a page turning, easy read but very good. Themes I picked out are the impulsiveness of humans and methods we use to try keep that in check (or not!), the random and arbitrary nature of human life and the fact that we can never really “know” anything in its full complexity and our tendency misinterpret things anyway. There is a big theme of living with the consequences of our actions which, of course, all of us have to do. (In this story some consequences are major and catastrophic). The book is well constructed around 3 main, interconnected women characters; it mixes humour and tragedy and never failed to hold my interest. And, it has clever twists.
