Publisher's Summary

Sarah Price has never regretted trading her MFA for a steady job so that her husband, Nathan, could write fiction. But at age 35, her world is turned upside-down by a shocking revelation: Nathan's upcoming novel, Infidelity, is based on fact.
Reeling from his betrayal, Sarah is plagued by dark questions. How well does she really know her husband? More important, how well does she know herself?
For answers, Sarah looks back to her artistic 20-something self to try to understand what exactly has happened to her dreams. And so begins her quest to discover which version of herself is the essential one: the artist, wife, mother, or someone else entirely? It's an eye-opening journey that leads Sarah hundreds of miles away from her marriage and back to herself.


What the Critics Say

"Stewart's graceful prose and easy storytelling pull the reader into caring about what happens to the struggling heroine while exploring the many gray areas of life and marriage. The conclusion, while true to Sarah, is surprising but not unrealistic." (Publishers Weekly)

The most awful narration I have ever heard

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No, I would recommend that they read it, not listen to it. This is the worse narration that I have ever had to endure in an audiobook. The narrator is whiny and dramatic and irritating beyond words. I enjoy Leah Stewart and have read her other works, so I suffered through this listening. I listen to several books a month and have experience with different narrators and I have never come across such an irritating voice and manner.

How could the performance have been better?

Heartbreakingly Relatable

I could not help but think this story was written about me, about my life and experience. There were so many similarities to my own marriage I felt like someone was reading my mind. It is comforting to know that other couples feel this way after a betrayal; forced to reevaluate their own lives and the events that led up to the infidelity. To accept the reality that an ordinary life is what we all end up with and if you're lucky enough to spend it with someone you love, hold onto it. Thank you for this book.
