Publisher's Summary

Kelly Corrigan talks with Lysa Williams of Blackstone Audio about her new book The Middle Place.

In a coming-of-age memoir about a woman who loved being a girl and what made her finally grow up, Kelly Corrigan brilliantly explores the "middle place" between childhood and adulthood, and how one woman made the leap to the other side.

"The thing you need to know about me", she begins, "is that I am George Corrigan's daughter, his only daughter."

Intertwining her own story with that of her larger-than-life, Irish-American father, Corrigan illustrates an unbelievably powerful and healing father-daughter relationship that evolves as they both face a battle with cancer.

Uplifting yet realistic, her story examines what it means when the person who has been your source of strength is in need of some himself. It's that bittersweet "in between" moment when you're a devoted wife and mother, but you'll always be daddy's girl.

Misleading

Why carry the interview with the author but not carry the actual audio book? It just doesn't make sense to me.

OK Interview, but doesn't inspire me

This interview didn't spark an interest in me that led me to want this book in my collection. It was OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. Left me wondering what the book was even about.

Fabulous insight into the book

Kelly Corrigan writes like she talks -- so listening to her voice gave new voice to her message. Thanks for including this interview with the book!
