The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty


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.

My Thoughts:

At the beginning I found this book to be draggy and I almost put it aside.  I’m glad I didn’t though, a little after the half point it became so compelling to the point where I literally didn’t stop reading til the end.  I found myself putting myself in the shoes of each character and thinking “What would I do”?  I felt sympathetic to all the characters even the ones that did wrong. Its human nature to think and act on impulse and sometimes that can lead to tragic outcomes.  But does that make that person a terrible human being? Not necessarily.  It really makes you realize that the littlest things that you do in life contributes to the ripple effects that lead you to where you stand.  It also is a reminder that Karma is very present in everyone’s life and what goes around will come around full circle. The epilogue of this book was my absolute favorite part.  Wow, this author did a great job of leaving the reader satisfied!
