Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 14 hours 49 minutes
With nothing but brains, ambition, and sheer nerve, Charlotte Hale built a career as a tough, do-anything-to-succeed real estate developer. She’s at the top of that mountain—but her life is empty. Her friends are as grasping and insincere as she has become. Far worse, she’s alienated her family so completely that she’s totally lost touch with her only daughter.
One terrifying day, facing her own mortality, she realizes that her ambition has almost destroyed her chance at happiness. So Charlotte vows to make amends, not simply with her considerable wealth but by offering a hand instead of a handout, putting in hours and energy instead of putting in an appearance, opening her home and heart instead of her wallet.
With each wrenching, exhilarating decision, Charlotte finds that climbing a new mountain—one built on friendship, love, and forgiveness—will teach her what it truly means to build a legacy.
“Emilie Richards’ compassion and deep understanding of family relationships, especially those among women, are the soul of One Mountain Away. This rich, multilayered story of love and bitterness, humor, loss, and redemption haunts me as few other books have.”—Sandra Dallas, New York Times bestselling author
