Title: Another Piece of My Heart
Author: Jane Green
Duration: 13 hours 43 minutes
Narrator: Jane Green
From The New York Times bestselling author of Jemima J and The Beach House comes Jane Green’s most emotional and powerful novel yet: a story that explores the complications of a woman marrying into a ready-made family.
Andi is a woman who has spent much of her adult life looking for the perfect man, and at thirty-seven, she’s finally found him. Ethan—divorced with two daughters, Emily and Sophia—is a devoted father and even better husband. Always hoping one day she would be a mother, Andi embraces the girls like they were her own. But in Emily’s eyes, Andi is an obstacle to her father’s love, and Emily will do whatever it takes to break her down. When the dynamics between the two escalate, they threaten everything Andi believes about love, family, and motherhood—leaving both women standing at a crossroad in their lives and in their hearts.
Another Piece of My Heart is a novel that illuminates the nuances and truths about relationships and is Jane Green at her absolute best.
The book has three parts. The first part is only Andi’s point of view, the narration starts to alternate among characters from the second part. It was hard to like any characters since they all have major flaws but it makes the story really realistic since no one is perfect.
I love it when the author is also the narrator!! I would definitely have read it differently than her. The way she narrates the book makes it so much better like where she pauses or he emotions are on point. Her British accent did take me a while to get used to since almost all the characters are American, but her other strengths make up for it.
3.5 out of 5 stars
