Publisher's Summary

There are some things you can never leave behind… Kate Forrest is invisible...her husband doesn’t seem to know she’s alive and her two children have become stroppy adolescents. With her 40th birthday approaching, Kate walks out of her life, and gets on a plane to Italy. With no responsibilities, she soon finds herself caught up in the arms of a man half her age. But eventually Kate will be forced to choose between her past and the future.

Enjoyable,but

Enjoyed this story and the narration was clear and very good. I would have given it more, but, the description of the sex scenes was crude, clumsy, and uncalled for in the storyline.

Enjoyable read...

Had read just one previous Tess Stimson book before this one and I must say both were an enjoyable read. Kept me guessing until the end and some good twists...

A disappointing end

Would you listen to The Wife Who Ran Away again? Why?

No, but I never listen to any book twice

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The ending was too contrived

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but it was one I did not mind coming back to
