From "America's librarian" and NPR books commentator Nancy Pearl comes an emotionally riveting debut novel about an unlikely marriage at a crossroads.
George and Lizzie have radically different understandings of what love and marriage should be. George grew up in a warm and loving family - his father, an orthodontist, his mother, a stay-at-home mom - while Lizzie grew up as the only child of two famous psychologists who viewed her more as an in-house experiment than a child to love.
Over the course of their marriage, nothing has changed - George is happy; Lizzie remains...unfulfilled. When a shameful secret from Lizzie's past resurfaces, she'll need to face her fears in order to accept the true nature of the relationship she and George have built over a decade together.
With pitch-perfect prose and compassion and humor to spare, George and Lizzie is an intimate story of new and past loves, the scars of childhood, and an imperfect marriage at its defining moments.

Derivative, boring, slow & awful narrator
Really boring book w unbearable narrator. Nothing happens and the big set up—the game—is never contextualized nor is it ever explained why she would do that (beyond my parents are shrinks it will make them angry. Really? This is character motivation?)
Nothing happens in this book and the protagonist is never developed and is terribly juvenile. Other characters one-dimensional.
Narrator reads this like she’s reading recipe directions. She’s flat, monotone, and painful to listen to. Her narration is as bad as her writing.
This is sparkling prosecco this is flat warm beer.
