‘The Husband’s Secret’ by Liane Moriarty: Book Review

Happily married mother of three, Cecilia Fitzpatrick, stumbles across a dusty envelope in her attic addressed to herself, stating “to be opened only in the event of my death”, written by no other than her beloved husband, John-Paul. After confessing to her husband that she found the letter, he urges her not to open it under any circumstances because he was embarrassed about what he wrote years ago. However, Cecilia can tell that John-Paul is lying and must have something to hide, so as curiosity got the better of her, she ripped open the letter.

John-Paul had a secret – one that would ruin her family and those around her – but now that Cecilia had opened the letter, she was involved. There was no going back.

However, I have completely surprised myself. A year ago I would never have imagined where I would be in life today. To be honest, it was my family who got me through the traumatic times and helped me back onto my feet – their love and support got me to where I am today.
