Fiona Range's 30 years have been the battleground between her good upbringing and the innate recklessness she defiantly attributes to the beautiful Natalie, the young unwed mother who abandoned her in infancy. Most of Fiona's troubles seem to be kindled by a mix of the wrong men and the excesses of her kind heart. Finally rejected by the embarrassed and highly regarded Hollis family who raised her, Fiona has spent the last weeks of summer trying to get her life in order.

But it takes only a single careless night to further condemn her in the eyes of the community. Finding herself even further estranged from relatives and friends, Fiona is drawn to the one man who wants nothing to do with her. He is her rumored father, Patrick Grady, so cruel and unstable that her Aunt Arlene and Uncle Charles Hollis fear for her safety. But, as always, Fiona will listen to no one. Determined to make Grady acknowledge their relationship, she pursues him in spite of his threats and increasingly erratic behavior.

This is a deeply moving and hauntingly tragic tale of goodness undermined by guilt, of obsession, and of the twisted bond of betrayal committed in the name of love. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saundra | 2/14/2014

    " Liked the character of Fiona. She was flawed but ultimately very likable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin Millward-Anastas | 2/9/2014

    " The story jumps around and the main character gets tiresome after the first 50 pages and the first 5 temper tantrums. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 2/3/2014

    " if i could i would of given the book 3.5 stars...the story definitely kept my attention and interest, most of her books do. Fiona is a 30 year old woman with lots of issues, and rightly so, she's the niece of one of the powerful families in the small town, and all of her cousins are doing their best at being responsible adults, she is working at a coffee shop and seems to always be in trouble. Fiona wakes up with a naked man in her bed the morning the book starts, what's not to like? the character Patrick I had a difficult time with...other than that, good story! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jody | 1/31/2014

    " This book could have been written with 200 fewer pages. Good story, but it dragged on and on and on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 1/30/2014

    " Love everything Mary has ever written! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 1/24/2014

    " Loved this book...sadly, maybe because I was able to relate so well to it's main character Fiona. Read it so long ago I don't remember how it turned out, but would definately recommed it and read it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janine | 1/12/2014

    " Couldn't put it down at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie Guerra | 1/12/2014

    " completly engrossing - i picked it up at a used bookstore, just kind of on a whim, and ended up not putting it down all weekend. fantastic tale - a mosaic of raw emotion and irrationality created in one victim of a dysfunctional family's fight to appear "normal" at any cost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 1/10/2014

    " I reread this yesterday after finding it cheap at a used bookstore. I havd read it in college and it stuck with me. Not quite as good as I remembered, but still a great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nannette | 12/18/2013

    " i connected with this read on a bunch of different levels which will have you wondering about me if you ever read it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carly Clem | 12/2/2013

    " Wow, what a screw-up the main character is. She only has 100 pages left to redeem herself, or to fall even harder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marleen | 11/16/2013

    " Very realistic book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/8/2013

    " I kept waiting for a crescendo ... and I finally got one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allthatjazzhd | 6/7/2013

    " Every slightly lost twenty-something woman should read this. Told as simply and beautifully as Morris is known for, you become engrossed in Fiona's struggles yet aren't always on her side... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Larissa | 5/24/2013

    " Ugh. Not a single likable character, uninspired writing, tired storyline. I liked "Songs in Ordinary Time", but this one couldn't end quickly enough for me. Thumbs down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesie | 3/31/2013

    " I adore Mary McGarry Morris...her books are very disturbing and this ine is, as well. Most of her books I give 5 stars to. This one I liked somewhat less- it is was little predictable but her writing is excellent "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pamela | 11/20/2012

    " It was OK at best. "

    " I found this book incredibly frustrating...the main character annoyed me and felt like a lot of the book could have been cut down but it was interesting enough to keep me intrigued and finish "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tristy | 12/18/2011

    " I really had a rough time with this book. I hated every character and while I hoped for some kind of growing and transformation of our main heroine, it just never happened - she stays stuck and broken and sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyson | 12/6/2011

    " Another masterpiece by Morris. This book is about a very troubled woman in her early 30s. It is such a well-written look into this woman's world. "
