Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author Camille Pagán comes a hilarious and hopeful story about a woman on the verge of a nervous breakthrough.

At fifty-three, Maggie Harris has a good marriage and two mostly happy children. Perpetually anxious, she’s also accumulated a list of semi-reasonable fears: falling air conditioners, the IRS, identity theft, skydiving, and airbag recalls. But never once did Maggie worry that her husband of nearly thirty years would leave her.

On the day Adam walks out the door, everything that makes Maggie secure goes with him. Only then does she realize that while she’s been busy caring for everyone else, she’s become invisible to the world—and to herself.

Maggie cautiously begins to rebuild her life with a trip to Rome, a new career, and even a rebound romance. But when a fresh crisis strikes and an uncertain future looms, she must decide: How much will she risk to remain the woman she’s just become?

AMY MCFADDEN narrates another great book . . . . .

When I began listening to WOMAN LAST SEEN IN HER THIRTIES by CAMILLE PAGÁN, I was delighted to hear the voice of AMY MCFADDEN drifting through my phone speakers! I knew without a doubt that I would love this book. Amy's voice just takes the words from the page and infuses them into my soul.

This book made me laugh, cry, and- most importantly- THINK. Since I am currently going through a separation and divorce, so much of what Camille writes is directly in line with my feelings at this time. There are even portions of her work that I plan to apply to some of my own life experiences. In some ways, reading WOMAN LAST SEEN IN HER THIRTIES was a sort of therapy for me. Just knowing there are others who have experienced the same things gives me reassurance that what I'm feeling is normal in my situation.

I plan to seek out more of Camille and Amy in my reading. Hopefully the two will actually be paired up in other works! Thank you ladies for such a fabulous creation!!!

The best narrator and enjoyable story

The book was a great Losten. Amy McFadden was the voice of Maggie - her emotion expressed made listening such a joy. At times the tears in her voice caused my eyes to well.
I liked the story - as a divorcee in my 50’s I could relate to it well.

At first, eh, but then you just get sucked into it

For some reason the beginning of this story bored me. It sounded like a woman just going through a tough divorce, very real life. Then things started happening, good and bad. With the various turns I had to keep listening. The ending really pulled things together but left some things to the imagination.

Loved this book

Maggie went through a lot to get to where she ended. Her children & husband had been her world. Now she need to see if she needed to stay that way or venture out in the world to see what more there was out there for her. In the end she made a decision that was best for her while still being there for the ones who loved her back. Great book, had me laughing & crying.

Lovely read, well written. Loved it!

Not often a book grabs me from the first chapter, but I identified with Maggie and we could be friends! The book speaks emotionally factual about divorce and the crazy experiences we have while healing. Delightful narration once again by Amy McFadden. Loved it.

Narration just grated on my last nerve!

PLEASE, the “over pronunciation” was so irritating! Bed was “bad” best “bast” said “sad”, yes “yas” etc. Story nothing special nor humorous, whiney, clingy dumped woman getting divorced, done before much better.

Great Narrator -- Story OK

The narrator here is great, Amy McFadden does a great job encompassing the feeling of the main character and her flaws and how she handles crises. But the main character is just alright - not much too her. It's like watching an average movie. Wish that the protagonist had more depth to her, rather than falling back on her "mommy-ish" ways in what got her by all the years before. This chick got on my nerves, glad the to listen to the book for free tho. I would be pissed if I had to pay for it.

Snooze......

This was the most boring book I have ever heard. Even the narration was monotonous and boring. Great book to fall asleep to at night.
