Book Review: The Husbands Secret by Liane Moriarty


At the heart of the top ten bestselling The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty is a letter that’s not meant to be read . . .

Mother of three and wife of John-Paul, Cecilia discovers an old envelope in the attic. Written in her husband’s hand, it says: to be opened only in the event of my death.

Curious, she opens it – and time stops.

John-Paul’s letter confesses to a terrible mistake which, if revealed, would wreck their family as well as the lives of others.

Cecilia – betrayed, angry and distraught – wants to do the right thing, but right for who? If she protects her family by staying silent, the truth will worm through her heart. But if she reveals her husband’s secret, she will hurt those she loves most . . .


An outstanding and sensitively written thriller with a twist.

In a small town in Sydney, Cecelia’s well ordered life is turned upside down as her husband’s secret derails her. Tess is sent into a spin when her husband and cousin reveal their devastating secret. Rachel has lived with the pain of losing her daughter for longer than she can remember, her suspicions that a local man is responsible lead to catastrophic events that leave you thinking what if?

Not just simply a whodunit, a truly outstanding book.
