From the author of the critically acclaimed What Alice Forgot comes a breakout new novel about the secrets husbands and wives keep from each other. Three women. One secret. And a letter that will change everything—forever. Tess. Rachel. Cecilia. Three women living three very different lives. But when Cecilia opens up a Pandora’s box, their lives will intersect in ways none of them could foresee. Cecilia is the woman who seems to have it all: a successful career, a gorgeous husband, and three wonderful daughters. One day she finds an old tattered letter in the attic that’s addressed to her, to be opened only in the event of her husband’s death. But he’s still very much alive. When Cecilia casually mentions it to him on the phone, he laughs it off, telling her to put the letter away. Yet when he flies home early from an overseas business trip, and then frantically searches for the letter, Cecilia realizes there’s something important in it, something she needs to know. Yet even Pandora herself could not prepare Cecilia for what the letter reveals.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Simultaneously a page-turner and a book one has to put down occasionally to think about and absorb, Moriarty’s novel challenges the reader as well as her characters, but in the best possible way.” Publishers Weekly
“Moriarty may be an edgier, more provocative and bolder successor to Maeve Binchy. There is real darkness here, but it is offset by the author’s natural wit—she weaves in the Pandora myth and a history of the Berlin Wall—and irrepressible goodwill toward her characters.” Kirkus Reviews
“Weaving stories from multiple perspectives keeps this one interesting all while leaving the reader wondering what will happen next. This great summer read is hard to put down.” Library Weekly

Reading groups rejoice. This meaty novel from the bestselling author will probably land on many must-read lists. Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Secrets can be sinister; they can eat you alive. But they can also set you free. The Husband’s Secret demonstrates this power with one of the most entertaining stories I have read in ages. Perfect for book clubs—lots to debate in these pages. I just loved it. Dorothea Benton Frank, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Original Wife
Moriarty may be an edgier, more provocative and bolder successor to Maeve Binchy. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Lip-smacking and sharply intelligent. Entertainment Weekly
Spellbinding...A knockout! Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author
The Husband’s Secret is so good, you won’t be able to keep it to yourself. USA Today
Brilliant. Sophie Hannah, international bestselling author of The Wrong Mother
Perfect for vacation reading: There’s humor, suspense, a circle of appealing women. People
