Julia Whelan narrates this portrait of love and grief with raw emotion that immediately pulls listeners in. Weeks after a meet cute, Elsie and Ben are in love. Five months later, they've eloped. Nine days after that, Elsie's world is shattered when Ben is hit by a truck and killed. Elsie not only has to face a new reality, but also a mother-in-law who doesn't even know she exists. A recently recorded conversation between Whelan and the author follows, in which the two reflect on how their careers have evolved. As Whelan describes a memory of her experience with this book, originally published in 2013, fans will recognize it as the likely inspiration for a moment she wrote into her own book THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.
