Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audibook edition of My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, read by Kimberly Farr.

A mother comes to visit her daughter in hospital after having not seen her in many years. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront her past, uncovering long-buried memories of a profoundly impoverished childhood; and her present, as the façade of her new life in New York begins to crumble, awakening her to the reality of her faltering marriage and her unsteady journey towards becoming a writer.

From Lucy's hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past, and the memories - however painful - that bind a family together.

Very good book but way too short!!! Was that intentional so as to get you to buy the next one ( which I’m going to do) this book has so much familiar dysfunctional that you’re bound to see yourself in parts of it , even if it’s very small. Really did enjoy it!

Self indulgent rambling repetitive no plot. Seemed more like a disgorgement of the character's disjointed psychotherapy sessions. I have enough problems of my own, thanks. The narrator was perfect for this book but was irritating to listen to as it reminded me of my mother-in-law's controlling, biting voice. A me problem, to be sure, but you get it.

This book was a rambling of disconnected stories. I do not understand the high rankings of other listeners because this book was a complete bore. The narration was very slow and a bit monotone and at times put me to sleep. I listen while driving so this is not a good thing. I would NOT recommend.

Touching story made of a series of smaller stories shared between mother and daughter.

Perfect story about "imperfect love" , which I believe we all witness. Narration well done. Kimberly brigs the novel to life and makes it believable.
