Publisher's Summary

Libby has a nice life with a great job, a gorgeous husband, and a big home by the sea. But she's becoming more unsure of Jack's feelings for her - and if he is over the mysterious death of Eve, his first wife.

When fate intervenes in their relationship, Libby decides to find out all she can about the man she hastily married and the seemingly perfect Eve.

Eventually Libby stumbles across some startling truths about Eve. As she begins to unearth more and more devastating secrets, Libby becomes frightened that she too will end up like the first woman Jack loved...

Dark turn

This book took a dark turn that I did not expect but for that I loved it a little bit more. But I don't think I could read it again because of that also.

A New Love Story: Chapter One

Would you listen to The Woman He Loved Before again? Why?

No, no need to because the book was so well written, I will always remember it.

What did you like best about this story?

Jack and Libby were able to finally bond.

Have you listened to any of Adjoa Andoh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. And each book has been powerful narrated. Adjoa Andoh is AWESOME with an incredible voice. Maybe John Grisham should have hired her vs. the fool he used for Gray Mountain. I love Grisham, but could not download (yet) Gray Mountain because I cannot tolerate the voice of the narrator. :(

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Where do I start?
Yes, Jack's entire life and evolution; the diaries; Libby, Jack's mother strength and class, and wicked Hector / Ceasar.

Any additional comments?

By FAR... Incredibly awesome. I've listened to (and read) many books this year; the best ones by far were "I Wonder as I Wander" (Langston Hughes) and this one. Takes a great mind to develop and display such a moving and well written book. It was great!

Ingrossing!

After reading the other book by this author that was new to me I immediatly looked for more here on Audible and found this book. I loved it as much as the other - I like that this auther chooses not to make things easy for her characters and just in life - things don't always end happy. Again, it has some hard subject matter and anyone adverse to drugs, violence, and just plain harsh living might not like it all that much - I however LOVED IT as much as the first one - sad Audible doesn't have all her books on here.
