Publisher's Summary

After years of following her navy officer husband on assignment around the world with their three children, Grace Bennett realizes that she’s left something behind - herself.

Steve Bennett can’t understand the unraveling of his wife’s heart. He wants to set things right, but when a secret from his past is revealed just as he’s sent out to sea, their already-strained relationship is pushed to the edge. Now, with plenty of space to ponder the true distance between them, Grace begins to reinvent herself. Just as her new self is coming to terms with her family life, the unthinkable happens.

A disaster aboard Steve’s ship shatters Grace’s world and all she can do is gather her children around and wait for news to come, good or bad. A navy wife’s worst nightmare collides with the cold truth that life’s biggest chances can slip away while you’re busy looking for guarantees.

With sensitivity and insight, number-one New York Times best-selling author Susan Wiggs explores the emotional rewards and sacrifices of love and marriage in this sweeping novel.

    Story
    "The Ocean Between Us is a gripping story"
    Would you listen to The Ocean Between Us again? Why?

    Yes! I will wait awhile, but I will go back and re-listen to this. There were many fabulous moments!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the idea of the story. Many stories are written about military MEN, but I think this was an honest portrayal of the families behind the men and I found the story gripping.


    Which character – as performed by Joyce Bean – was your favorite?

    Emma was my favorite very believable throughout, and so much like her father...even though no one seemed to notice.


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

    There were several places, especially near the end of the book that I actually had tears in my eyes.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to reading more books by this author.
