Publisher's Summary

Sarah Price has never regretted trading her MFA for a steady job so that her husband, Nathan, could write fiction. But at age 35, her world is turned upside-down by a shocking revelation: Nathan's upcoming novel, Infidelity, is based on fact.

Reeling from his betrayal, Sarah is plagued by dark questions. How well does she really know her husband? More important, how well does she know herself?

For answers, Sarah looks back to her artistic 20-something self to try to understand what exactly has happened to her dreams. And so begins her quest to discover which version of herself is the essential one: the artist, wife, mother, or someone else entirely? It's an eye-opening journey that leads Sarah hundreds of miles away from her marriage and back to herself.

What the Critics Say

"Stewart's graceful prose and easy storytelling pull the reader into caring about what happens to the struggling heroine while exploring the many gray areas of life and marriage. The conclusion, while true to Sarah, is surprising but not unrealistic." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "The most awful narration I have ever heard"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, I would recommend that they read it, not listen to it. This is the worse narration that I have ever had to endure in an audiobook. The narrator is whiny and dramatic and irritating beyond words. I enjoy Leah Stewart and have read her other works, so I suffered through this listening. I listen to several books a month and have experience with different narrators and I have never come across such an irritating voice and manner.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator

    Story
    "I am only at chapter 3 & the narrating is terrible"
    What would have made Husband and Wife better?

    I am only into chapter 3 so far, the narrating for this book is very frustrating to listen to. I have just had to shut it off too many times now because of the whiney voice, the high pitch at times and the accents are just bad. She really tried you can tell but it is just very hard to listen too.

    Story
    "I waited so long..."
    What disappointed you about Husband and Wife?

    I read The Myth of Me & You, Leah Stewart's first novel and couldn't wait for her to publish her next. Every time I logged in I searched under author's name. Finally came the day when her next book arrived. I was more than disappointed. What happend? Her first book was so thought provoking and real. This book seemed cliche and "been there done that". Frankly I could not stand the narration either.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gabrielle de Cuir?

    Anyone. Too dramatic and whiny.

    What made the experience of listening to Husband and Wife the most enjoyable?

    The characters were relatable. Good Story.


    What about Gabrielle de Cuir’s performance did you like?

    Very good, with making each characters voice believable.
