Publisher's Summary

A grieving widow and a disenchanted writer form an unexpected bond in a novel about second chances and finding the courage to let go of the past.

It’s been three years since Claire Kite lost her husband, David, an aspiring novelist, in a tragic car accident. Claire finally finds the courage to move on; then she discovers among the remnants of her shattered world her husband’s last manuscript. It’s intimate, stirring - and unfinished. An idea comes to her.... What if she can find someone to give David’s novel the ending it deserves?

Whitaker Grant is famous for his one and only bestselling novel - a masterpiece that became a hit film. But after being crippled by the pressure of success and his failed marriage, Whitaker retreated from the public eye in his native St. Petersburg, Florida. Years later, he’s struggling through a deep midlife crisis. Until he receives an intriguing request from a lonely widow. To honor David’s story, Whitaker must understand, heart and soul, the man who wrote it and the woman he left behind. 

There’s more to the novel than anyone dreamed. Something personal. Something true. Maybe, in bringing a chapter of David’s life to a close, Claire and Whitaker can find hope for a new beginning.

Loved this book!!

I loved this book, something bad had to happen for something good to happen, that’s how it works sometimes. My only complaint as with any narrated book, let the female narrate females & the male narrate the males if the narrators can’t do the voices of the opposite sex well. Otherwise, great book, I recommend it, u want be disappointed

Narration is horrible

The story was interesting enough, but the narration was enough to make me put the story down.

Loved it, a Must Read!

This was my first book from this author and I am glad I took a chance because I loved the story. It was well written and easy to follow. It hit all the feelings and was uplifting. On top of the story it really made me think about how to make a positive impact in someone's life.

Performance

This book got great reviews on Amazon and so so on audible. I can see why. The female performance was awesome. 5 star. The male performance was so over the top it was hard to enjoy the book. It was like listening to a 1930’s radio ad... for hours. When you think you can’t take take anymore, the female narrators soothing voice comes on, so you give it another shot. It went on and on like that. It was so distracting I almost didn’t finish this book a few times. If I read this book instead of listening I might have given it 5 stars.

Wrong Narrators

This is one of those times when the narrators ruined the book for me. I don’t know why the author chose these two people to be the voice of their book but it totally threw me off and made me dislike listening to it completely. Couldn’t wait for it to be over.

Excellent story within a story!!

This started out very mundane and slow for me but then there were quite a few twists and turns. It did a good job of looking into the perspective of a widow, and orphan and the Foster Care program as well as what writers go through and their creative processes. if you're looking for something that is fun and interesting and heartfelt at the same time this is your book.
