Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author Camille Pagán comes a hilarious and hopeful story about a woman on the verge of a nervous breakthrough.

At fifty-three, Maggie Harris has a good marriage and two mostly happy children. Perpetually anxious, she’s also accumulated a list of semi-reasonable fears: falling air conditioners, the IRS, identity theft, skydiving, and airbag recalls. But never once did Maggie worry that her husband of nearly thirty years would leave her.

On the day Adam walks out the door, everything that makes Maggie secure goes with him. Only then does she realize that while she’s been busy caring for everyone else, she’s become invisible to the world—and to herself.

Maggie cautiously begins to rebuild her life with a trip to Rome, a new career, and even a rebound romance. But when a fresh crisis strikes and an uncertain future looms, she must decide: How much will she risk to remain the woman she’s just become?

Critic Reviews

"Amy McFadden emotionally narrates the story of a woman's struggle to find herself after her divorce.... McFadden does such an excellent job of transforming herself into Maggie that the character comes across as fully authentic. All the emotions are perfectly depicted in this performance, and listeners won't be disappointed." (AudioFile)

AMY MCFADDEN narrates another great book . . . . .

When I began listening to WOMAN LAST SEEN IN HER THIRTIES by CAMILLE PAGÁN, I was delighted to hear the voice of AMY MCFADDEN drifting through my phone speakers! I knew without a doubt that I would love this book. Amy's voice just takes the words from the page and infuses them into my soul.

This book made me laugh, cry, and- most importantly- THINK. Since I am currently going through a separation and divorce, so much of what Camille writes is directly in line with my feelings at this time. There are even portions of her work that I plan to apply to some of my own life experiences. In some ways, reading WOMAN LAST SEEN IN HER THIRTIES was a sort of therapy for me. Just knowing there are others who have experienced the same things gives me reassurance that what I'm feeling is normal in my situation.

I plan to seek out more of Camille and Amy in my reading. Hopefully the two will actually be paired up in other works! Thank you ladies for such a fabulous creation!!!

The best narrator and enjoyable story

The book was a great Losten. Amy McFadden was the voice of Maggie - her emotion expressed made listening such a joy. At times the tears in her voice caused my eyes to well.
I liked the story - as a divorcee in my 50’s I could relate to it well.

nice book!

I think i have to listen to this book again so that I can picture who i'd cast better, I think my first run through left me unsure of what the characters looked like. in any case I liked this book, i wish we had gotten an epilogue or something but i was glad with her decision at the end. the characters seemed real and the narration was great. i don't know that this was in my top 5 of the year but it was def a good one that i didn't regret listening to

Snooze......

This was the most boring book I have ever heard. Even the narration was monotonous and boring. Great book to fall asleep to at night.

At first, eh, but then you just get sucked into it

For some reason the beginning of this story bored me. It sounded like a woman just going through a tough divorce, very real life. Then things started happening, good and bad. With the various turns I had to keep listening. The ending really pulled things together but left some things to the imagination.

Surprise of my year

I thought this would be another way to waste a few hours. After a terribly slow start, this became a great book. Thoughtful. Not a lot of action or gratuitous sex. Not a lot of girl power get back at him. Just very nice, well thought out and written. A very real look at the painfulness of marriage, divorce, and life.

An interesting listen

The introspective moments Maggie experienced as a-soon-to-be ex wife, woman and mother are very touching. I laughed out loud at things characters said, and the tears in the narrator’s voice were touching. However, I could not get past the narrator finishing almost every sentence in a questing tone - even if it was a statement.
