When Ella wakes up in a hospital following a hit-and-run incident, she is scared and confused. Close to tears, her eyes fall on a get-well-soon card on the window sill, and the nurse reassures her that her loving husband will be back soon. But Ella has never been married. In fact, she has lived alone her whole adult life; working hard, rarely socializing, quietly harboring a terrible secret from her past.

This is one of the most frustrating stories I have had the displeasure of listening to, never before have I wished harm upon a protagonist. The character of Ella is unsympathetic and whiny at best. The only redeeming quality was the narration, it’s the only reason I stuck around for the quite frankly absurd twist.
