Cecilia Fitzpatrick, devoted mother, successful Tupperware business owner and efficient P&C President, has found a letter from her husband.

"For my wife, Cecilia Fitzpatrick, to be opened only in the event of my death"

What happens next changes Cecilia's formerly blissful suburban existence forever, and the consequences will be life-changing for the most unexpected people.

      Comments about The Husband's Secret:

      The 2nd half was a page tuner. I enjoyed her writing style and how it was based in Australia, giving that sense of familiarity. Easy to pick up after a few days of not reading. I will be recommending this to friends.

                  This book was much better than I expected. I had read a newspaper article about the author and how she was really not very well known in Australia but very popular overseas so I was expecting a much less well written book. However, I really enjoyed this. I could easily identify with the characters and the sting in the tail of the story was a complete surprise. I gave it to a friend as soon as I had finished and she couldn't put it down either!

                    I was agreeably surprised by this book. I thought it would be a silly chick lit but it was really well written, had a good plot and was very interesting. I won't be so judgemental in future and have ordered another of her books.
