The brightest day of her week is Thursday; the day Jeanie takes her granddaughter to the park. There, one day, she meets Ray, kind, easy to talk to, and gorgeous – he is everything George isn’t. But does she have the courage, while facing opposition from all sides, to turn her life upside down for another shot at love?

Enjoyable listen

If you could sum up Thursdays in the Park in three words, what would they be?

What could happen if marriage partners don't really listen to each other and hear what the other one is saying.

An excellent escapist listen

I loved this novel and for a couple of days the lives of the characters completely took over my life. If you enjoy the novels of Joanna Trollope and Penny Vincenzi then this is definitely worth a listen. It's obviously not a literary novel but it certainly rises above standard chick lit and Hilary Boyd writes a very convincing family story.

Unlikeable characters, unrealistic plot

I know I am disagreeing with the masses here, but I have rarely found an audiobook more grating (and my library is into the three-hundreds). The main character is confusingly portrayed as feisty whilst acting like a doormat. The language used made the characters seem uneducated, while the plot clearly meant them to be otherwise. It was irritated every time I listened! The characters were stupid, melodramatic, manipulative, crass or just plain unlikeable, and the plot was so unrealistic. The central romantic relationship sprung from nowhere, and the same points were made over and over again. We get it, we're supposed to sympathise with the adulteress, she's conflicted, can we move on with the plot now? The baby voice was nauseating, although the narration was not too bad otherwise - just not to my personal taste. Finally, the sensitive issues weren't kindly dealt with and I hated the overall message (I have never been cheated on, I'm not just saying this because I'm bitter!). If I were able to leave a book unfinished I would have. Blah!
