Publisher's Summary

A Year and Six Seconds opens on the winter day Isabel Gillies arrives in Manhattan, two young sons in tow, after her husband has left her; she's moving back in with her parents until she can figure out what to do next. In scene after sweet, hilarious scene, Gillies exposes her attempts to feel strong and lovable and to cross items off a staggering to-do list that includes: break down only in front of best friend, not in front of children; get along with parents in tight quarters; find preschool spot for son mid-school-year in Manhattan; receive one great, romantic kiss. She makes lists, she dates, she cries; she and her whole crowded family get the flu; then, just when Gillies least expects it, she falls in love. A Year and Six Seconds is a buoyant, true romantic comedy with a universal human undercurrent reminding us that we can all struggle and stumble, but somehow come out just fine on the other side.

What the Critics Say

"Gillies's discussion of the steps she took to remedy the overly emotional aspects of her personality will engage readers beyond those in search of simple happy endings." (Library Journal)

    Story
    "Disappointing compared to first novel"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was better than listening to nothing but I wasn't as eager to listen as I normally am with a good book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I hate to say it but it wasn't interesting enough. I chose the book because I loved the author's previous book.


    Was A Year and Six Seconds worth the listening time?

    I guess if you are in the mood for a descriptive story of a women's finding love after divorce.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED "Happens Every Day" by Isabelle Gillies. Listen to that instead.
