Publisher's Summary

Poring over a dusty hatbox of photographs in her grandmother's closet, Emily Prentice is shocked to discover her father was married to his high school sweetheart before meeting her mother.

In the summer of 1968, Jack and Libbie fall in love under the spell of their small town, untouched by the chaos of the late sixties. Though Libbie's well-to-do parents disapprove of Jack's humble family and his aspiration to become a mechanic, she marries Jack a year after they graduate high school. But soon their happiness crumbles as Libbie's mental state unravels and she is drawn to alcohol and drugs. Despite his efforts to help her, Jack loses the woman he loves and is forced to move on with his life.

Now that Emily's mother has passed away, Jack is alone again, and Emily grows obsessed with the beautiful woman who had given her father such joy. Determined to find Libbie, Emily pieces together the couple's fragmented past. But is it too late for happy endings?

    "Good"

    Almost made me want to cry, which is unusual for me. Didn't end the way I though it was going to end.

    Story
    "The Notebook kind of love story"
    What made the experience of listening to Finding Libbie the most enjoyable?

    I spend a lot of time in the car and get tired of listening to the radio and even satellite radio so it's nice to have an alternative to "listen" to a book since my downtime is limited at this point in my life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to Jack for sure. He was the perfect gentleman, hard worker, loyal to the core, and totally in love with Libby. Downright good guy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Towards the end .. I don't want to ruin it for any onlookers debating to read it or not. It brought me to tears (in a good way).


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

    True Love is never lost.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed the book. Couldn't wait to get in my car so I would have more listening time.

    "Interesting"

    Love story with mental health thrown in. Mental health is still a huge issue today and alcohol just exacerbates it. I wish more people would actually be helped like Libby but it is not happening with the many social welfare benefits being removed.
    There were also many inaccuracies regarding aging( 65 is pretty young if you are healthy)
    Yet author made me feel like death was imminent 😑

    Story
    "I loved this story."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Libbie to be better than the print version?

    No. The sounds the narrator made with her mouth were irritating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ending.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Siiri Scott’s performances?

    Probably not.


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

    Goosebumps. It gave me goosebumps. Such a moving story.
