Publisher's Summary

A "literary tsunami" that is taking the world by storm - already sold in over 30 countries - about one unforgettable woman's search for a meaningful life.

Blanca is 40 years old and motherless. Shaken by the unexpected death of the most important person in her life, she suddenly realizes that she has no idea what her future will look like.

To ease her dizzying grief and confusion, Blanca turns to her dearest friends, her closest family, and a change of scenery. Leaving Barcelona behind, she returns to Cadaqués on the coast, accompanied by her two sons, two ex-husbands, and two best friends, and makes a plan to meet her married lover for a few stolen moments as well. Surrounded by those she loves most, she spends the summer in an impossibly beautiful place, finding ways to reconnect and understand what it means to truly, happily live on her own terms, just as her mother would have wanted.

A fresh, honest, and ruefully funny story about love, sex, marriage, grief, friendship, and parenthood, This Too Shall Pass is an irresistible novel that is fast becoming an international phenomenon.

Decent Book!

This was my first audible book! I liked the story and I loved whoever was reading it aloud, her voice was very nice and calming which is a big thing for me, the persons voice has to be nice otherwise it’s hard for me to enjoy the book. It was a litter raunchier than I thought it was going to be but it had some truthful life quotes that I could take away from it. I can’t wait to find and listen to more audibles!
