The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty


I enjoyed this book immensely. It looks like a girl book and I guess it might be but its nothing like the typical romantic woman book. I originally thought it was going to be like The Pilot’s Wife based on the quick dust jacket summary but its not. Here’s the summary.

“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.”

I love books that have opposing characters for each chapter and this book does a great job intertwining the plot together with their individual stories. Its a quick read because you inevitably connect with one character and want to ge to the next chapter that’s about her. Only after did I realize this author is the same author as What Alice Forgot, which I own but haven’t read yet. I will moving it up on my to-read list!
