Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Beth Harbison's most emotional audiobook ever, a fractured family must come together at a beach house haunted by the past.

Willa has never fully recovered from the sudden death of her husband Ben. She became an absent mother to her young son, Jamie, unable to comfort him while reeling from her own grief.

Now, years after Ben’s death, Willa finally decides to return to the beach house where he passed. It’s time to move on and put the Ocean City, Maryland, house on the market.

When Willa arrives, the house is in worse shape than she could have imagined, and the memories of her time with Ben are overwhelming. They met at this house, and she sees him around every corner. Literally. Ben’s ghost keeps reappearing, trying to start conversations with Willa. And she can’t help talking back.

To protect her sanity, Willa enlists Jamie, her best friend Kristin, and Kristin’s daughter Kelsey to join her for one last summer at the beach. As they explore their old haunts, buried feelings come to the surface, Jamie and Kelsey rekindle their childhood friendship, and Willa searches for the chance to finally say goodbye to her husband and to reconnect with her son.

Every Time You Go Away is a heartfelt, emotional story about healing a tragic loss, letting go, and coming together as a family.

Beth Harrison Does it Again

I just Love Beth Harbison and this book does not disappoint. It's a little different than her other books, but the story and the character development are equal to, if not better than past books. Orlagh Cassidy is one of the best and my absolute favourite Audio Book Reader and the combination of Beth's writing and Orlagh's reading make for such an enjoyable experience, making you want to drive the long way home if listening in your car. A truly great story about dealing with the death of a loved one, with such rich character definition, it makes you feel like you are a part of their world. Thank you #Audible1 for offering such great books!

Not her best book

I am a big fan of Beth Harrison but this was not her best book. It didn’t have her regular humor and quick wit. The end was lackluster and felt it just cut off.
