The Husband’s Secret Book Review

I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a book club with y’all! Would that interest anybody?! Let me know and maybe I will! Otherwise I’ll just keep hosting my own book club…alone…whatever, more wine and cheese for me.

Anyways! On with the point of this whole post, The Husband’s Secret The Husbands Secret Book Review!

I loved this book! It’s one of those books where it tells the story through different characters points of view, and then ties it all together and they all intersect. Liane Moriarty does an amazing job of that in this novel! I really can’t share much without giving anything anyway, so I’m keeping this brief!

Can you imagine if your husband wrote you a letter, “to be read in the event of his death”, and you found it… When he was still alive and well?? Seriously, just the premise of this book is genius. I mean really, what would you do??

Liane has written a gripping and though provoking novel about the human desire to confess. She actually said {I think in the afterword? I can’t remember where I read this} that she was inspired to write this book when she heard about a man on his death-bed who confessed to a murder, and then he ended up living, and was punished accordingly haha! But after hearing that she was fascinated by the idea of deathbed confessions {and how common it is} and the human need to get things off our chest before we die. It is a brilliant concept. And she executes it flawlessly.

I think y’all can figure out on your own that this will be a bit heavy of a book, it’s great and I highly recommend it, but I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t cry. I cried quite a bit. As a mother I was especially touched, which is why I wanted to write about it for Mother’s Day!

Please check this book out {if you have Amazon Prime you can check this book out for free! If you don’t have it, click that link and you can get a free no strings attached 30 day trial of Amazon Prime!} It’s so worth the read! Maybe we can talk about it in a couple of weeks if y’all respond positively to the book club idea!
