Description

Lucy Houston and Mickey Chandler probably shouldn't have fallen in love, let alone gotten married. They're both plagued with faulty genes - he has bipolar disorder and she has a ravaging family history of breast cancer. But when their paths cross on the night of Lucy's 21st birthday, sparks fly, and there's no denying their chemistry. Cautious every step of the way, they are determined to make their relationship work-and they put it all in writing. Mickey promises to take his medication. Lucy promises not to blame him for what is beyond his control. He promises honesty. She promises patience. Like any marriage, they have good days and bad days-and some very bad days. In dealing with their unique challenges, they make the heartbreaking decision not to have children. But when Lucy shows up for a routine physical just shy of their eleventh anniversary, she gets an impossible surprise that changes everything. Everything. Suddenly, all their rules are thrown out the window, and the two of them must redefine what love really is. An unvarnished portrait of a marriage that is both ordinary and extraordinary, Dancing on Broken Glass takes listeners on an unforgettable journey of the heart.

Didn't want to stop driving!

I listen to my audible books on the way to and from work. This book was so captivating that I didn't want to stop driving, even once I arrived at my destination!

Sad, yet great insight into real life situations

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Cancer is not a subject people choose to live with or read about….Top this off with bipolarproblems. But if my friend wanted to really dive into the fragile state of
real life for some people, I think to HEAR it Audibly is the only way to go!!

What other book might you compare Dancing on Broken Glass to and why?

Definitely "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes and "Out of my Mind" by Sharon Draper

What about Amy Landon and Zach Villa ’s performance did you like?

I really really liked Amy's rhythm!!! I had a hard time hearing Zach many times because he dropped his voice. Then Amy would speak and it seemed twice as loud and clear.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Never! But I couldn't put it down because I wanted to know what happened. It took about a week to finish while I walked.

Skip it

This book was recommended by a friend for a book club. Poor choice. I loved listening to the voice. So I gave the performance a high rating. But the book itself was slow, predictable, and the language was utterly sophomoric. The characters were weak and shallow and for the most part not believable. I did not connect to them. I had a very difficult time finishing the book and I figured out the storyline and how it would end long before it ended. Skip it. There are so many wonderful books on the market. This one was disappointing.

An Amazing Love Story

Lucy was an amazing selfless person inside and out. What a sacrifice she made for her family and especially her husband. The story was very emotional that at one point I wish I hadn’t started reading it; the ending chapters made up for that. I did feel like the epilogue ending was a little short, especially after the story was a little slow and very detailed throughout the book.
