Publisher's Summary

Historian Lizzie Petrie remains nothing more than a lesbian in her bitter mother’s eyes. The suppressed hurt of that superficial assessment means she still catches herself off guard when thinking of Sarah as her wife. The couple has endured the fallout of Lizzie’s insecurities and set up house in Fort Collins, Colorado. Now their relationship is about to be tested again.

When her wife announces she wants to have a baby, Lizzie panics. A baby? The thought of sucking an egg from her ovary and implanting the resulting embryo into Sarah’s womb terrifies her. Lizzie constantly worries if she’ll make a good mother. Just when she starts to make peace with the idea, Lizzie’s estranged family enters her life again. The news is anything but good, and she finds herself wondering how to make amends with her aloof mother, stranger of a father, and self-centered brother.

Deep down, Lizzie is more loving and caring than she ever gives herself credit. Sometimes it takes a tragedy to open a woman’s eyes to her full potential. But at what price?

The perfect fallow up to book one of “A Woman Lost”

I really enjoy this Author and I have read this
book/ series pryer to the audiobooks release. I’m happy to say First, the Narrator Stephanie Murphy was spot on with each of the characters and made them very believable as the story progressed. Second I found that i truly enjoyed listening to this audiobook just as much as I did the first book. It was perfect! I was drawn in to each character and with this book I found myself truly invested. I am fully aware that there’s book three “A Family Woman” to this series ... I definitely will be picking that one up in audiobook form too.

Well done to the author and Narrator! Well done! 15 stars across the board 😉

Excellent!

I loved the audio edition of A Woman Ignored. I can really identify with a woman struggling to “act” normal. Trying to fit in. Sometimes the teasing Lizzie gets from her wife and best friend seem a little to harsh to me. Stephanie Murphy does an excellent job with the narration.

Very nice sequel, great story

I loved the storyline of this book. T.B. added some interesting plot twists. I especially like the fact that not everything was about the lesbian couple. It shows some interesting relationships and interactions between characters. I would recommend it. Can’t wait for the next one.

Great follow up novel

Welcome to the life of Lizzie Petrie who is successful at love despite herself, and more importantly her upbringing. Her character continues to unfold in this follow up novel to A Woman Lost. Petrie is a fitting name because there she is, in a small container (this novel as opposed to a petrie dish) and we get to watch what happens as life throws it's challenges at her. As the story unfolds, it's easy to fall in love with Lizzie and her craziness, with Sarah her partner and the stability and stretch she provides for Lizzie, and their best friend Maddie, who keeps them on their toes and laughing, all in the name of love. The topics are not light in this book, but the beauty of a soul unearthed and given wings is the gift we get from reading or listening. I didn't like Lizzie very much in the first book. I barely got through it because I found her so odious. But she shines through at the end of the first book and even more so throughout this book. I can't wait until the baby comes!

A Match Made In Heaven!

T. B. Markinson’s clever, witty, funny writing read by, the incomparable Stephanie Murphy. What’s not to love? I hope there’s going to be a book 3.

excellent

Book 2 in the woman series is a great continuation from book 1.
Love the way Stephanie Murphy narrates these books. It sounds a lot better than in my head.
