Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built a future together. But after the children leave home, they quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job offer, Elizabeth puts her needs aside to follow him across the country. Until the sudden death of her father changes everything. Grieving and alone, she retreats to an isolated beach house where she packs away the last remnants of her parents' lives. There, the pieces of a past she never knew unfold to reveal a tender story of lasting devotion, the kind of steadfast commitment that Elizabeth admits is missing from her own marriage. Faced with her own disillusionment, she makes a terrifying decision, risking everything she has for a second chance at happiness.

Hit way too close to home

Having been married nearly 33 years and moved 22 times in that period to a husband who is also a superstar in his field, I oh so get it. I, too, am at that point of my life where I have just about had it with the moves and being put on the back burner. Having raised our child, who is grown and gone, and having to had forgone any sort of career and wondering just what the heck do I do now, and what do I want to do; I really got this one. It is hard being married to a man who is sexy, gorgeous and successful and being a wife looked at by his younger female coworkers as arm candy with no intelligence. You find yourself isolating and not being able to connect and make friends any longer because you know it will end in a couple of years or so. Many times listening to this my heart would just ache. I actually feel a little inspired to get some brushes, canvas, and paint and see if I can still create art like I used to when I was young. I even wish there was a Passionless Woman group as encouragement.

Boring and predictable

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe an older person wiht a boring life would like this book.


What was most disappointing about Kristin Hannah’s story?

There was no real story. The plot line was predictable and the narrator was not good at all. The southern accent was completely off and annoying.


How could the performance have been better?

A different narrator is a must.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The book was about love, choices and redemption. The ideas were ok, but not in any way exciting.
