Publisher's Summary

The Last Time They Met: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

A dazzling story about marriage, forgiveness, and chances not taken, by the best-selling author of Body Surfing and A Wedding in December

At a literary festival, a poet named Linda Fallon meets for the first time in years a fellow poet, Thomas Janes, whose fame has grown during a decade of seclusion. 

This is no chance meeting. Thomas saw Linda was scheduled to appear and chose this moment to reestablish contact with a woman he had passionately pursued years earlier. Their affair was disastrous for them both, a turning point in their lives, and the damage they did in those years still haunts them both. 

The Last Time They Met moves backward in time from Linda at age 52 to explore her life years earlier, at age 26, and still earlier, at 17. Anita Shreve examines the extraordinary resonance a single choice, even a single word, can have over the course of a lifetime.  

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Compelling story

This was a spectacular story. Very descriptive . The narrator was very precise and easy to listen too. I could definitely have lived without the background music. It was distracting.
