by | Read by Maggie Smith

Biography & Memoir • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

American poet Maggie Smith beautifully narrates her memoir of the end of her marriage and rediscovering herself as she picks up the pieces. Starting with her heartbreak, the memoir explores not only a very specific kind of pain, but also the roles that women embrace and grow into. From traditional gender roles and power dynamics to finding out who you truly are and giving yourself much needed empathy, this memoir uses snapshots of Smith's life to explore bigger ideas. Smith's pacing makes each word and phrase more powerful. Her performance can be heartbreaking, but her narration is charming and poignant.
