The Husband's Secret

This is such a great book!  It could have been so predictable, but the author makes it into one of the most original reads I’ve had in a long time.  I was immediately engaged with the story and liked the characters.  There were so many spot-on things written about the lives of busy working moms struggling with balancing work and family.  I found it very relatable on that level.   I highly recommend this to readers of intelligent chick-lit!

From Barnes & Noble

“My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died….” Her husband had not intended that she read the letter until after his demise, but Cecilia’s curiosity betrayed him. The unsettling words that she read forever changed the life of this once contented wife and mother; yet this well-intended posthumous missive also becomes the spur that enables Cecilia to connect with two other women recently pushed towards crossroads. A new novel by Liane Moriarty (What Alice Forgot; The Hypnotist’s Love) as original and well-crafted as a fine string quartet.
