    In this breathtaking and beautiful novel, the #1 New York Times best-selling author Anna Quindlen creates an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family, and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions.

    Overall

    This is probably one of the Audible listens that has affected me more than any other. I had heard that there is a major event that happens in this book and I purposely stayed away from any reviews so the plot wouldn't be spoiled. I was listening while on a long drive and had to sit in the car and keep listening when I got to a crucial point. Definitely a book you may want to listen to alone for the powerful emotions it will evoke. Quindlen got me very attached to her characters which made the entire book that much more of an emotional connection. Wonderful writing and excellent narration by Hope Davis. Very highly recommended.

    Four unforgettable characters beckon you into this spellbinding new novel from Sue Miller. First among them is Wilhelmina Billy Gertz, small as a child, fiercely independent, powerfully committed to her work as a playwright. The story itself centers on The Lake Shore Limited, a play Billy has written about an imagined terrorist bombing of that train as it pulls into Union Station in Chicago, and about a man waiting to hear the fate of his estranged wife.

    Susan D says: "Far better than a previous reviewer thought"
    "Powerful Book and Great Narration"
    Overall

    I am a fan of Sue Miller and have enjoyed reading and listening to many of her books. This one had gotten luke-warm reviews, so I didn't download it right away. I'm glad I did--the author, not surprisingly, did a wonderful narrating job and the story was interesting--a "play within a play," a 9/11 angle without being overbearing, and several interesting characters that we come to know in increasing depth as the novel progresses. Highly recommended.
