For the most part, the narration was good. The narrator has an obnoxious habit of lilting upwards ever so slightly on the last word of every sentence. But you get used to it. Kind of.
The story was great if you are expecting a story about a woman in a hard situation. If you're expecting a romance, you'll feel a tiny bit disappointed. Not super disappointed, by any means. Just a bit.
It's not steamy (which I appreciated), so no worries if you prefer to avoid sex scenes. But even in the scenes meant to be between the MC and the new love interest, the underlying focus was on the crappy (ex)husband. I wanted a bit more of THEM without the constant shadow of the ex.
That said, I still enjoyed this. Never felt like a waste of time. I cared enough to rewind if at times I felt like I didn't quite listen well enough. solid 4 stars.
