The best-selling author of A Map of the World and The Book of Ruth serves up an entirely different kind of novel: Le Divorce meets The Love Letter.

Married for 12 years, Laura and Charlie Rider have come to share almost everything: their nursery business, their love for their animals, and, most especially, their zeal for storytelling. And though they no longer share a bed, they are happy enough continuing along in their pleasant, platonic routine. Then Charlie begins an email exchange in earnest with Jenna Faroli, the host of a popular radio show, and, according to Laura, the single most famous person in the town. Seeing her opportunity, Laura cannot resist using Charlie's new connection to promote her writing skills, and together, the couple crafts florid, strangely intimate messages that entice Jenna into their game. The Project, as they come to call it, quickly spins out of control. As the lines between Laura's words and Charlie's feelings become blurred, Jenna finds herself affected in ways most disturbing, while Laura is transformed into an artist of the highest caliber...in her own mind. The end results are hilarious and poignant, and for Laura Rider, beyond even her wildest imagination. Download and start listening now!

    " Adult fiction. A woman obsessed is a dangerous thing, apparently. I'm not sure what to think about this book, actually--it's pretty strange. "

    " Such a boring book! I had to force myself to finish it, despite it being pleasantly short. I just couldn't relate to the characters or the story; a real disappointment! "

    " I'll just say this: not her best, at all. Hard to believe this was written by the author of a Map of the World. "

    " Couldn't stick with this one, either. She called too much attention to her writing (which is very good) by being a little too clever. But still, I want the story more than anything, and at times it was too deeply buried. "
