Summary

Historian Lizzie Petrie remains nothing more than a lesbian in her bitter mother’s eyes. The suppressed hurt of that superficial assessment means she still catches herself off guard when thinking of Sarah as her wife. The couple has endured the fallout of Lizzie’s insecurities and set up house in Fort Collins, Colorado. Now their relationship is about to be tested again.

When her wife announces she wants to have a baby, Lizzie panics. A baby? The thought of sucking an egg from her ovary and implanting the resulting embryo into Sarah’s womb terrifies her. Lizzie constantly worries if she’ll make a good mother. Just when she starts to make peace with the idea, Lizzie’s estranged family enters her life again. The news is anything but good, and she finds herself wondering how to make amends with her aloof mother, stranger of a father, and self-centered brother.

Deep down, Lizzie is more loving and caring than she ever gives herself credit. Sometimes it takes a tragedy to open a woman’s eyes to her full potential. But at what price?

The best book in the series so far

This has to be our favourite book from the series so far. It was so funny in bits, that our sides were hurting from laughing so hard. With Lizzie trying to get her head around becoming a mother with Sarah was funny, and the story with Lizzie's mother was very true to life.

excellent

Book 2 in the woman series is a great continuation from book 1.
Love the way Stephanie Murphy narrates these books. It sounds a lot better than in my head.

The perfect fallow up to book one of “A Woman Lost”

I really enjoy this Author and I have read this
book/ series pryer to the audiobooks release. I’m happy to say First, the Narrator Stephanie Murphy was spot on with each of the characters and made them very believable as the story progressed. Second I found that i truly enjoyed listening to this audiobook just as much as I did the first book. It was perfect! I was drawn in to each character and with this book I found myself truly invested. I am fully aware that there’s book three “A Family Woman” to this series ... I definitely will be picking that one up in audiobook form too.

Well done to the author and Narrator! Well done! 15 stars across the board 😉

Excellent!

I loved the audio edition of A Woman Ignored. I can really identify with a woman struggling to “act” normal. Trying to fit in. Sometimes the teasing Lizzie gets from her wife and best friend seem a little to harsh to me. Stephanie Murphy does an excellent job with the narration.

The saga continues

I liked Lizzie much better in this story. Even though she was dealing with some life changing issues there were moments I had to chuckle at. Lizzie has already come a long way and I look forward to her and Sarah raising kids. Stephanie has managed to get all the voices perfect. On to the next😉

Divine

Divine, sharp, brilliant, spicy and straight forward. I love Lizzie and Sarah stories, Maddie and Peter make it very special. This particular story covers some serious issues like colorectal cancer, death of a close relative and how the support of friends helped through it all. Lizzie is an historian, she is off and reserved, but I love her. I found the series intriguing and charming, like a glass of champagne. I definitely recommend it.

Great sequel

This is the sequel of A Woman Lost, and book two of the series. I won’t get tired saying this is one of my very favourite series. I’m always glad to have the opportunity to read more about Lizzie.

I loved Lizzie from the beginning in book one, despite being so lost and so self-centred. I loved this book so much because we witness her growth as a different woman. Despite of still being a bit lost, she is definitely changing thanks and for Sarah. Was so great to see how even when she was terrified of become a mother and that she didn’t thought she could be a good mother, she is determined to make her wife happy, fighting her own insecurities and family history.

We get to learn more about Lizzie’s family, where she comes from, and that help undoubtedly to understand her more. The Petries aren’t easy by any means; no wonder why she wants to stay away from them as much as possible. But life for Lizzie is always full of surprises and sadly not the good kind; I feel for her, that life is a struggle upon struggle, but I am glad she has Sarah and how they are growing as a couple. Also, it is very interesting to see her relationship with her mother. We discover so many things along the road, making us love her more.

It is a great read, wonderful sequel. Markinson did a great job. I had a great time reading this book, as usual enjoying big time Lizzie’s inner thoughts.

This one is also narrated by Stephany Murphy and she once again did a fantastic job, she always manages to transmit all the feels and real deal of the raw emotions, Capturing Markinson’s story very well.

A must read undoubtedly, even when can be read as a stand-alone, I recommend to read the prequel and book one before this one, it’s undoubtedly a great and very enjoyable series.

Great Story!

I just finished the audio of A Woman Ignored and loved it! I had already read the book, but the audio gave me another dimension to the story and its characters. Stephanie Murphy is the perfect choice for the voice of Lizzie. Her voice helped shape the character and give her something that my own “inner reading voice” just couldn’t. Lizzie is one of my favorite fictional characters of this genre. TB writes her in such a way that you can not help but root for her. She is a flawed, bumbling, self doubting egg head that I would befriend in a minute. I can’t wait to see what happens to her and Sarah next!

Very nice sequel, great story

I loved the storyline of this book. T.B. added some interesting plot twists. I especially like the fact that not everything was about the lesbian couple. It shows some interesting relationships and interactions between characters. I would recommend it. Can’t wait for the next one.

Great follow up novel

Welcome to the life of Lizzie Petrie who is successful at love despite herself, and more importantly her upbringing. Her character continues to unfold in this follow up novel to A Woman Lost. Petrie is a fitting name because there she is, in a small container (this novel as opposed to a petrie dish) and we get to watch what happens as life throws it's challenges at her. As the story unfolds, it's easy to fall in love with Lizzie and her craziness, with Sarah her partner and the stability and stretch she provides for Lizzie, and their best friend Maddie, who keeps them on their toes and laughing, all in the name of love. The topics are not light in this book, but the beauty of a soul unearthed and given wings is the gift we get from reading or listening. I didn't like Lizzie very much in the first book. I barely got through it because I found her so odious. But she shines through at the end of the first book and even more so throughout this book. I can't wait until the baby comes!

A Match Made In Heaven!

T. B. Markinson’s clever, witty, funny writing read by, the incomparable Stephanie Murphy. What’s not to love? I hope there’s going to be a book 3.
