Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: December 2008
Duration: 7 hours 25 minutes
At age fifty, Pippa Lee is in a good place. She's the devoted wife of Herb, a brilliant and successful older publisher, the proud mother of successful twins, and a lovely and adored friend and neighbor. In Pippa's life, however, change is occurring under the surface, and it seems unreal. The truth is that this lovely and loving woman has a past of grit, deceit, and betrayal. In her reckless youth, she managed to have an affair with a teacher, run away from home, get heavily involved with drugs, and be set adrift into the wilds of New York-until, unexpectedly, she manages to find love and create a family of her own.
"The Private Lives of Pippa Lee is a beautifully layered and subtle novel of identity, with a wonderfully vivid sense of place and character. And it's hesitatingly wise in all sorts of ways, as well as being a deftly constructed page-turner." -Joseph O'Connor, author of Star of the Sea
