Publisher's Summary

Everything was fine 14 years after she left New York.
Until suddenly, one day, it wasn't.
Emily Morris got her happily-ever-after earlier than most. Married at a young age to a man she loved passionately, she was building the life she always wanted. But when enormous stress threatened her marriage, Emily made some rash decisions. That's when she fell in love with someone else. That's when she got pregnant.
Resolved to tell her husband of the affair and to leave him for the father of her child, Emily's plans are thwarted when the world is suddenly split open on 9/11. It's amid terrible tragedy that she finds her freedom, as she leaves New York City to start a new life. It's not easy, but Emily - now Connie Prynne - forges a new happily-ever-after in California. But when a life-threatening diagnosis upends her life, she is forced to rethink her life for the good of her 13-year-old daughter.
A riveting debut in which a woman must confront her own past in order to secure the future of her daughter, Kim Hooper's People Who Knew Me asks: "What would you do?"

Emotional and compelling

This fits my definition of a page turner ( or maybe more accurately, a "can't stop listening").
The character of Emily/Connie is well drawn. She's not always likeable, she makes rash choices and isn't always honest, but that makes her seem real. There is a lot of heartache in this story, and some lovely moments of romance.
I have not been a fan of the narrator, Xe Sands, until listening to this. Her narration style which I found grating on previous books, works perfectly here. She finds just the right emotional tone for the story.
One of my favorite audiobooks for this year !

Captivating!

I hung on each word....caught up in the entire story....imagining what she looked like at every turn, and there were many. The only part I didn't like was its ending! Meaning, that it ENDED! I would enjoy the unfolding of the next part of the story and hope there is a sequel! Pleez???
