Publisher's Summary

Once a week Rosie Tipcott counts her blessings. She goes to sit on her favourite bench on the North Devon cliffs and thanks her lucky stars for her wonderful husband, her mischievous young daughters and her house by the sea.

But then her husband unexpectedly leaves her for another woman and takes the children. Now she must ask the question: what is left in her life? Can Rosie find the strength to rebuild herself? More importantly, does she even want to?

    "Easy listen"

    Nice and easy to listen too, not the greatest story line but enjoyable and light. Enjoyed narration and looked forward to picking up where I had left off each time.

    "Loved it"

    I only read books or listen to them in bed so, having to go to bed earlier every night to see what happened next means that the book was really good.

    Story
    "She took me with her"

    I really felt for the main character Rosie. She was believable and likeable and she took me on the journey with her.
    I'd have liked a little more complexity or challenge to my thinking but a nice easy listen.
    I was wary to see that the author read the audiobook as think it is a real skill to narrate a book, but she was really professional and skilled.

    "Made me smile and sad. Real life scenarios"

    Loved the fact it was set at Woolacombe. Very easy to listen to and quickly get to know the characters.
    I will purchase another Amanda Prowse book, especially if narrated by the author again.
    I will remember this book

    Story
    "Great read!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rosie was my favourite character even though I thought she was a bit too 'nice' to her husband who had been such a loving devoted husband one minute and telling her that he was bored with his marriage and leaving her the next minute!! The way she tried to make friends with the woman he had run off with was a bit unbelievable too.


    What does Amanda Prowse bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Listening to a book is no comparison to reading a book. Its so much better to listen as it's like listening to a play. I thought the idea of the author reading her own book was good. She wrote the book, so she knows exactly how it should be read. Good author, good narrator.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud at some of the antics of her 2 little girls and some of the things they said, it was hysterical, they reminded me of my two nieces.

    Story
    "Resonated with my own experience, so a good listen"

    This was a very difficult listen in places as my own experience so mirrored Rosie's and some of the emotional fallout was described exactly as I'd felt it, so real I thought that the author must surely have been in a similar situation. However, I'm really glad I listened to this book even though it reminded me of an utterly devastating and bleak time in my life - it was perceptive and thought provoking, and without giving anything away, it has a happy ending!

    Story
    "A nice read, albeit tough at times to get through"
    What made the experience of listening to My Husband's Wife the most enjoyable?

    I thought the author who was also the narrator did a great job. Her emotion throughout was so believable and touching that I was so much more drawn in than I usually am when listening to a book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rosie of course! Amanda Prowse captured the essence of Rosie beautifully through the use of her voice. I could relate to a great deal of what Rosie felt and expressed at times throughout the book. It had it's difficult moments for me.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Prowse – was your favorite?

    Rosie - for all the reasons above.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Rosie lost it all. The pain, despair, and loss were very deep.

    Narrated by the author is usually the duo I try to avoid. However Amanda pulls it off, well done.
