Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller Jane Green delivers a riveting novel about two women whose lives intersect when a shocking secret is revealed.

From the author of Another Piece of My Heart comes the gripping story of two women who live on opposite coasts but whose lives are connected in ways they never could have imagined. Both women are wives and mothers to children who are about to leave the nest for school. They're both in their 40s and have husbands who travel more than either of them would like. They are both feeling an emptiness neither had expected. But when a shocking secret is exposed, their lives are blown apart. As dark truths from the past reveal themselves, will these two women be able to learn to forgive, for the sake of their children, if not for themselves?

    "Best of Jane Green"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, felt this was the best of Jane Green's books


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Family Pictures?

    How all the women grew during the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Some scenes with Maggie when she was a snob and after losing it all her life in the country.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Family Drama


    Any additional comments?

    I have read quite a few books by Jane Green; however, Family Pictures was one of her best! Without giving away the book, it is a heartfelt story of two women with two families and find they have a lot in common. Only when one daughter visits the other, their world crumble.

    There are many take-a-ways from this book – people are not always as they seem, and it takes something bad to happen in order for us to find our true selves. Things do not bring happiness and you find out your true friends when lose it all. You really learn to love Maggie towards the end of the book and sometimes---we can find family in others when we cannot find it the biological way. Highly recommend!

    Story
    "Compelling Story But Annoying"
    Would you try another book from Jane Green and/or Amy Quint?

    No


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dan Brown


    What didn’t you like about Amy Quint’s performance?

    A bit flat


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Story was a good premise, but couldn't even finish


    Any additional comments?

    This story about a young girl with emotional difficulties is a very compelling story. However, it was so unrealistically written that I couldn't even finish it.

    The story was written with a lot of very mature terms such a bulimia and binging. These are not terms that a girl of the protagonists age would use, nor would she recognize the symptoms or being admitting to them at the early stages of the book.

    It was so unrealistic that I kept trying to listen and finally couldn't take it any more and gave up!

    Bad choice on my part! Shame on me!

    Story
    "Horrible!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Bringing back the old Jane Green and getting a narrator who didn't sound like she was on the verge of laughing hysterically all the time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jane Green again?

    Right now, probably not.


    What didn’t you like about Amy Quint’s performance?

    Her narration always felt contrived and like she thought everything was funny.


    What character would you cut from Family Pictures?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Huge disappointment and waste of a credit.

    "Likable Characters"

    Although I knew what the family secret would be before I even started reading the book, I did enjoy the book. I grew to like the characters and was anxious to get to the end of the book to see how the story ended for them.

    Story
    "Couldn't put it down!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. It's not just a love story, anything but love. It's about survival and triumph.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how the author opened the thought processes of these women as they moved through such a painful time and out the other side. I don't know if I could've been so strong. I enjoyed listening to how they handled all of the different situations as they arose....and thier childrens' concerns also.


    What about Amy Quint’s performance did you like?

    She just put so much depth into these characters....crying, laughing, whatever was called for, Amy was there and so the visual was there too. Loved it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Anger! I hated Maggie! I could've shaken that woman to her core! That is, until reality grabbed ahold of her and then I didn't have to touch her. Then I fell in love with the woman. She then turned into my favorite in the book. What a sweetheart.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a feel good book, it's a wake-up book. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
