‘Waiting On’ Wednesday: The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty



Hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

 ‘Waiting On’ Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where by particpants post their most anticpated new releases.

Having read my first Liane Moriarty book last year – The Hypnotist’s Love Story – and falling in love with Moriarty’s writing, I can’t wait for her latest book to be released. Moriarity has such a way with words that it’s hard not to get sucked into her universe, where the character’s are more than alive and the story is always so intriguing. For example, The Hypnotist’s Love Story was not your typical love story in the way that it featured heavily the male protagonist’s ex-partner-turned-stalker and unlike typical reactions our female protagonist was intrigued and happy with that for the most part. For more on that particular story you can read my review here or visit the goodreads entry for it by clicking the links on the title.

To be honest, it was only earlier this month that I learned that Moriarty had a new book coming out soon – and only then because I happened to be cleaning up my computer’s favourite folder and clicked the link for her website and there it was, in big bold letters, with a header and book cover and everything. The best part by far however, was the fact that the release date is MARCH 17! So soon, and yet so far away at the same time.  As you can see I’m quite eager to read this book.

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

Expected publication March 17, 2013


To be opened in the event of my death

With one swift, vicious movement, she sliced the envelope open, and pulled out a handwritten letter.

love you and the girls…
so sorry to leave you with this…
cannot bear

The Husband’s Secret is a funny, heartbreaking novel of marriage, grief, love and secrets. When her husband announces he’s in love with her best friend, painfully shy Tess picks up her young son and returns to her mother’s house. There she begins an unexpected affair with an old flame. Rachel is a woman in her sixties consumed by grief and anger at the loss of her daughter twenty years earlier. When her son announces he is taking her beloved grandson overseas, Rachel begins a descent into deeper bitterness and pain. Cecilia is the quintessential “I don’t know how she does it” woman. A devoted mother to three daughters, she runs her household like clockwork, is President of the P&C, owns an extremely successful Tupperware business and is happy in her fifteen-year marriage. Until she discovers a letter in their attic labelled: “To my wife Cecilia, to be opened in the event of my death”… Her husband’s secret is a bombshell beyond all imagining with repercussions across the lives of all three women.
