Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, read by Kimberly Farr.
A mother comes to visit her daughter in hospital after having not seen her in many years. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront her past, uncovering long-buried memories of a profoundly impoverished childhood, and her present, as the façade of her new life in New York begins to crumble, awakening her to the reality of her faltering marriage and her unsteady journey towards becoming a writer.
From Lucy's hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past and the memories - however painful - that bind a family together.

Geeat!

la autora ha conseguido sumergirme rápidamente en su historia. Los momentos más memorables son cuando Lucy quiere acercarse a los recuerdos más dolorosos de su infancia y cómo reacciona su madre

A great pleasure!

I loved it from start to finish, I couldn't stop listening until it was finished. Will be recommending this for my next book club and to anyone who will listen!

'All life amazes me,' says Lucy Barton. <br />

and Elizabeth Strout tells her story so gently yet powerfully: complex, insightful and painfully loving. It amazes me.

Brilliant book and brilliant performance

Elizabeth Stroud has written an intimate book with such strength that it will stay with me for many years. I'm am already on to Olive Kitteridge.

well written but the subject didn't grab me

narration was good
writing was clear and moving. But Lucy and her dismal family held no interest for me
