Smart and gripping, Elayna's story raises heart-rendering questions about the challenges of ordinary life (marriage, career, independence, and sexuality) that have no easy answers. Sweet Ruin is a triumph of contemporary fiction from a writer known for her candor and wisdom.
"Excellent characterizations....Dialogue and the spot-on representation of the family dynamic make this book difficult to put down." (Publishers Weekly)

Best so far this year!
Wow! And you thought 30 somthing year old Mommys had a boring life? The characters and plot are so very realistic. This really could happen and probably does every day. Don't be shocked... this ones steamy, but not in a cheesy silly romance novel kind of way.
The narrator was awesome. I did not have to struggle to hear what she was saying, nothing was muffled or distorted by any kind of strong accent. Just very nice smooth voice with the exception of the little girl who tends to be a little whiney for my tastes.
This truly was one of my favorites this year. You may also enjoy Between, Georgia and What Comes After Crazy. All are pretty much in the same genre of womens fiction. Meant for those over 30 years old.

Well, I was able to finish it, but it never got better. It wasn't so bad that I stopped listening, but I was really happy when it was done and I could move onto another book. I would not waste your credit on this one.
