Publisher's summary

Leisa Yeats has always defined herself by the things that are important to her - a good family, a loving relationship, and a meaningful job working with kids. Life is good. But within a span of a few weeks, all of that changes. She’s always known she was adopted, but newly revealed lies and secrets kept by her parents make her question everything she thought she knew about her beginnings. Her 10-year relationship with her partner, Nan, is unexpectedly on shaky ground when she discovers that Nan, too, has kept a secret from her all these years. 

Suddenly, everything Leisa believed - about her life, about the people around her, about herself - everything is turned upside down, and nothing is as she thought it was. Pulling away to try and sort things out, Leisa reaches out to the wrong people and, in the process, nearly loses herself. Buffeted at every turn by storms that shake the very foundation of her world, Leisa must figure out whom and what she can hold fast to as the winds of change blow.

You will want to go on listening

I loved this book, and I loved the use of Monsoon as a jumping board to the pick of the story. The way it is written, with looking back and into the future, makes it more interesting, and even if you can guess some of it, with the narration and the writing style you will continue to listen, at least I did.

Wrelinger is a master story teller!

This story is beautifully complex, with very human characters. As are all the rest of Ms. Wrelinger books that I have read to date. This story invoked such a wide range of emotions for me, joy, dismay, love, dispair, hope, and more. At times it was hard to listen to because it hit close to home. But in the end, I was left with tears of joy and a heart filled with hope. To me this is must read for anyone who is adopted, has adopted or in a long term relationship. And the narrator does a wonderful job!

Excellent!

I loved Year of the Monsoon. Motto: What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Beautifully written. Lisa Larsen does an excellent job with the narration.
