‘The Husband’s Secret’ by Liane Moriarty

The Husband's SecretstarstarstarstarMother of three and wife of John-Paul, Cecilia stumbles upon an old envelope in the attic. Written in her husband’s hand, the letter says: To be opened only in the event of my death. Her husband is still alive and he is begging her not to open it. What does it say? Should she open it? What if she does?

Fabulous novel! This Australian author had me in the palm of her hand. Compulsively snatching time away from other projects and activities to read, I was addicted from start to finish. The end was totally unexpected and simply stunning. What a great storyteller, and her exploration of the idea of the “burden of a secret” is well developed. Can’t wait to read the other books she has written! Highly recommended for book clubs since there would be lots to discuss!

One of the things I love to do is research the author of the book I’m reading. Who are these people who write great books? Some authors have very entertaining websites and Moriarty certainly does. She’s very funny and her sense of humour shines through as she talks about her own life and writing. Liane Moriarty Website
