The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

In the Greek myth Pandora's Box, Pandora was given a beautiful jar and told not to open it under any circumstance. But, curiosity got the best of her and Pandora opened it and all the evils of the world escaped and spread over the earth. An action so small, yet with severe and far-reaching consequences. In The Husbands Secret by Liane Moriarty, Cecelia Fitzpatrick's "jar" is in the form of a letter she finds in her attic, addressed "For my wife - to be opened only in the event of my death". This one small letter changes the course of many lives.
