Back of the book:
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.
Due to life being so busy, I rarely finish a book in less than a week (although I am working on that). However, The Husband’s Secret broke all of the rules. I read this on my summer holiday and finished it IN LESS THAN TWO DAYS! I literally could not put this book down.
I’m so glad I bought this book, not only was it a brilliant read but I have also been introduced to a fantastic author – Liane Moriarty.
Without giving anything away, at first I thought that I would struggle to keep up with this book when all of the characters were introduced but it was unbelievably easy to digest.
The Husband’s Secret makes you wonder how your own life can turn out differently if you had or hadn’t said or seen something.
It’s fair to say that I was hooked from the very first page and kept me hooked until the very last page, it was truly ‘unputdownable’ – is that even a word?! If not it should be just to describe this book.
I love Moriarty’s writing style so much so that I have gone onto purchase another book of hers – Big Little Lies (review to follow).
I love, love, loved this book and would recommend anyone to read it. 10/10 stars for such a brilliant author.
Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora.
