Twenty years later, their daughter, Molly, happens upon a forgotten newspaper - a seemingly small moment that leads to her first job and, eventually, a pregnancy by a wealthy man who wants to marry her but whom she does not love. But it is her own daughter, Ruth, who begins the journey that will take her back to 1941 and a redefinition of herself and of love.
Told in Lively's incomparable prose, Consequences is a powerful story of growth, death, and rebirth and a study of the previous century: its major and minor events, its shaping of public consciousness, and its changing of lives.

"Intricate, heartbreaking, and redemptive." (Publishers Weekly)
"[Lively's] greatest gift...is her ability to...grasp the unchanging essences of life....A writer like Ms. Lively [is] worth treasuring." (The Wall Street Journal)
"[Lively's] characters are beguiling, and her blend of romance and stinging social commentary is tonic." (Booklist)
Probably not because I don't listen to many books a second time.
It is much like other books by that author.
She had a gorgeous brit accent ( I love that)!
I loved the original love story between Lorna and Matt.
