Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of A Love Story for Bewildered Girls by Emma Morgan. 

Grace loves a woman. Annie loves a man. Violet isn't quite sure. But you'll love them all....

Grace has what one might call a 'full and interesting life', which is code for not married and has no kids. Her life is the envy of her straight friends, but all this time she has been waiting in secret for love to hit her so hard that she would run out of breath, like the way a wave in a rough sea bowls you over, slams you into the sand and nearly drowns you.

When Grace meets a beautiful woman at a party, she falls suddenly and desperately in love. At the same party, lawyer Annie meets the man of her dreams - the only man she's ever met whose table manners are up to her mother's standards. And across the city, Violet, who is afraid of almost everything, is making another discovery of her own: that for the first time in her life she's falling in love with a woman.

A Love Story for Bewildered Girls is a moving and exquisitely funny novel about love, sex and heartbreak.

A great performance of a beautiful story

This was a beautiful book. The readers all gave such fantastic voices to their characters and I so enjoyed the comforting rich northern accents. The different readers for each of the main characters and the intros to each chapter worked really well to help me keep on top of whose voice was being used, which could easily have become confusing but didn't. The girls were likable and believable characters and they had very distinctive tones. I really enjoyed the story and how the characters became connected as the novel progressed. I thought that the initial blossoming love stories were beautiful and the sad endings of some were very well orchestrated. The final love stories celebrated at the end were so special and lovely and I thought it was wonderful how such varied and important forms of love were displayed and valued. I so enjoyed hearing characters I could relate to as a gay woman with depression, and the fact that they found love in the end really offered me a sense of hope for myself. I think this book is so cleverly written and read and I'll definitely come back to it again.

dysfunctional love stories are the best

It is rare that we lesbians get a story that isn’t about "coming out" or about gruff cranky detectives. This story is perfect for entertainment, and the narration was spot on. My only note about hte story is that the psychologist character, really needs to find a good psychologist to talk to. The narration can make or break an audio book experience, this narration was top notch. I plan to listen to all the Emma Morgan books on audible… oh wait this is it. audible! More please
