Narrated by the author,. . .

Narrated by the author is usually the duo I try to avoid. However Amanda pulls it off, well done.

Count your blessings

I liked the story line. Any mom or woman will easily connect with Rosie. The banter between mom and girls was comical. It's sad that this scenario happens all too often but it is real life. Families splitting up affects more than just the hubby/wife/kids. You really see that and it puts everyone in the middle or forces people to take sides. I hate it!!! I'm torn with the ending. I get it but I would've love to hear a little more on how Rosie ended up where she did. Narrator was very good. Can't wait to visit London.

A nice read, albeit tough at times to get through

What made the experience of listening to My Husband's Wife the most enjoyable?

I thought the author who was also the narrator did a great job. Her emotion throughout was so believable and touching that I was so much more drawn in than I usually am when listening to a book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rosie of course! Amanda Prowse captured the essence of Rosie beautifully through the use of her voice. I could relate to a great deal of what Rosie felt and expressed at times throughout the book. It had it's difficult moments for me.

Which character – as performed by Amanda Prowse – was your favorite?

Rosie - for all the reasons above.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Rosie lost it all. The pain, despair, and loss were very deep.

Lacks credibility

I found it hard to get into at first because it took many chapters before it became interesting. It also lacked credibility in parts.
