“The Husband’s Secret would more rightly be classified as psychological suspense, beautifully rendered, with a structure that sustains and builds interest from beginning to end.” —Sue Grafton
"Brilliant." —Sophia Hannah, international bestselling author of The Wrong Mother
"Liane Moriarty (What Alice Forgot) is far more than the skillful writer of potboilers. Her compelling characters could be your friends and neighbors, nice and neurotic in equal doses. . . .

The Husband's Secret is so good, you won't be able to keep it to yourself." —USA Today
“Reading groups rejoice. This meaty novel from the bestselling author (The Hypnotist’s Love Story, What Alice Forgot) will probably land on many must-read lists.” —Dallas-Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Présentation de l'éditeur
'The Husband's Secret is a staggeringly brilliant novel. It is literally unputdownable' Sophie Hannah
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 . . .
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.
