Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Zurlo is lost. She's a wife, a mother, a teacher, a PTA volunteer - but somewhere along the way, she has lost herself. Depression and despair can lead to desperate measures, and when she is pulled back from the brink of suicide, Elizabeth slowly tries to rebuild her marriage and reclaim her life.
Just as she has finally started to put herself back together, a scandalous novel rocks her small town...and costs Elizabeth her social standing, friendships, and ultimately, her marriage. However, the man who seemingly destroyed Elizabeth's life helps her realize who she is and what she needs to do to become the woman she's capable of being, and the woman she used to be.

A Good Listen

Would you try another book from Kathryn R. Biel and/or Lisa Beacom?

This is my second book from this author and narrator. I really enjoyed listening to this story.

Any additional comments?

I liked this book. I felt that Elizabeth needed to grow a backbone with everyone in her life. I would have liked a more concrete ending to the book because it seemed even in the end she was waffling with her decisions. I felt so bad for Elizabeth even thought I understand why the book was written, I feel the writer was very selfish and Elizabeth should have kicked him out of her life. I still think it was a decent listen in the end.

Surprisingly Good!

This book is different than most books I have read. I usually prefer fantasy with HEA conclusions that are not realistic but leave you with a warm happy feeling. For me books are a scape from reality. This book was very different though. I could relate to the main character and feel her pain and frustration. I'm a mother of three and understand how being a wife and mother can consume your life so much you are left empty and frustrated.

I started listening to it and it did take a bit to suck me in but once it captured my attention I could not put it down. It goes back and forth between present and past then it jumps almost two years without explaining what happened and slowly you learn what happened to help change her life. When everything seems to be going well something awful happens and she is abandoned by all her "friends". That type of public humiliation she had to endure is more than I could have gone through.

IMO her husband was honestly stupid and clueless. He had no regard or affection towards her. I don't know many marriages that can survive without love. Her husband acted more like a roommate than a partner. He also behaved like a cheating husband. He never looked at her, never was intimate, and showed total lack of interest. Pretty sad...

Jack is a total jerk. IMO He was never an option for her. After all he did to her, it is insane that she ever gave him the time of the day. What he did is unforgivable. I would have despised him for it.

The narration was excellent and it brought the story to life. It was easy to differentiate between characters.

The book wrapped up with a surprise ending. Honestly, it caught me by surprise but it was the best decision for her. The book was very well written and narrated.
