Review: The Husband’s Secret

The Husband's Secret
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I read the cover jacket summary, I was highly intrigued. What did this man do that he wrote a letter to his wife that should be opened upon his death… maybe I should do something like that! But wait… do I have a secret I need to reveal… yes… worth putting in a sealed letter that I can’t disclose until I’m dead and buried… no… so I guess this won’t be something I need to do in the future. Eh, I tried.

But reading the book is something to do! And it did not disappoint. It has many different characters and focuses on 4 or 5 stories that interweave throughout the different people’s lives. Figuring out who is who takes a little while, but once you do, you totally see the story coming together. And when it finally does with the tragedy near the end, you’re heartbroken.

<> Fate? Karma? Is it fair to inflict that on someone who had nothing to do with the original crime except that the recipient was related to the perpetrator of the original crime? I found it unfair given who is impacted, but ultimately, it gives the reader something very intricate to think about.

I would definitely read another book by this author. I have recommended it to several friends. Nice job!

  1. Wait! What? OMG! I am just in the middle of this and now I HAVE to know what happens with that little teaser!

    I certainly get where you’re coming from as far as characters and having to figure out who is who. There is several different perspectives that the story is told from, and keeping track of their parents and their kids meant me stopping and thinking…who is this person?! lol
