From the New York Times best-selling author of Jemima J, and The Beach House, comes Jane Green’s most emotional and powerful novel yet: a story that explores the complications of a woman marrying into a ready-made family, and the true meaning of motherhood.
Andi has spent much of her adult life looking for the perfect man, and at 37, she's finally found him.
Ethan - divorced with two daughters, Emily and Sophia - is a devoted father and even better husband.
Always hoping one day she would be a mother, Andi embraces the girls like they were her own. But in Emily’s eyes, Andi is an obstacle to her father’s love, and Emily will do whatever it takes to break her down. When the dynamics between the two escalate, they threaten everything Andi believes about love, family, and motherhood - leaving both women standing at a crossroad in their lives… and in their hearts.
Another Piece of My Heart is a novel that illuminates the nuances and truths about relationships and is Jane Green at her absolute best.

My opinion

A writer..in my opinion...should NEVER narrate their own book. They OVER due the reading. Their emotions over their writing and the story are too high and it over exaggerates the way they narrate.

Strong story, but needs a different narrator

What made the experience of listening to Another Piece of My Heart the most enjoyable?

The story was very good: it was Jane Green at her best -- creating complex, memorable characters in real life situations.


What other book might you compare Another Piece of My Heart to and why?

It took more turns than Promises to Keep, but it was similar to some of Green's earlier novels.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jane Green?

At first, I was thrilled to have Jane Green narrating her own book -- but it turned out to be a bit of a disservice to the strength of the story. The characters are American, so Jane's British accent was distracting. Also, one of the great strengths of professional narrators is their ability to change their voices slightly -- even via inflection or speed -- for different characters. This isn't a skill Green has, so I was often confused about who was speaking if i missed a word or a sentence.


Any additional comments?

It's a compelling story that loses a bit in the narration, but fans of Jane Green's work will enjoy it.
