From the author of the critically acclaimed What Alice Forgot comes a breakout new novel about the secrets husbands and wives keep from each other. Three women. One secret. And a letter that will change everythingforever. Tess. Rachel. Cecilia. Three women living three very different lives. But when Cecilia opens up a Pandora’s box, their lives will intersect in ways none of them could foresee. Cecilia is the woman who seems to have it all: a successful career, a gorgeous husband, and three wonderful daughters. One day she finds an old tattered letter in the attic that’s addressed to her, to be opened only in the event of her husband’s death. But he’s still very much alive. When Cecilia casually mentions it to him on the phone, he laughs it off, telling her to put the letter away. Yet when he flies home early from an overseas business trip, and then frantically searches for the letter, Cecilia realizes there’s something important in it, something she needs to know. Yet even Pandora herself could not prepare Cecilia for what the letter reveals.

Knowing I have to get up and go to work the next morning is not nearly sufficient to stop me reading just one more chapter, again and again until it 's ...
A while back, a co-worker and I were discussing our shared love of Gillian Flynn. After having read/listened to Gone Girl, I quickly tore through Flynn's other books. My co-worker suggested that if I enjoyed Gillian Flynn, I'd probably also enjoy reading Liane Moriarty's novels. "Liane Moriarty? ...
I so wish 'Women's Lit' was marketed differently. I was kind of embarrassed to be reading a book titled The Husband's Secret with a cover featuring a skinny Stepford wife. Beneath all the packaging was a story I quite liked. It follows three women in Australia, whose lives initially seem separate ...
It took me awhile to get into this book. The beginning was a bit slow for me, but once I got into it the book was great. I enjoyed the characters and how they all connected. Just to think that this was all about a letter in the beginning.. That wasn't even the half of it.
