#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner’s short story, “The Half Life,” previously published in Redbook magazine, is now available on audio.

“My life is over,” Piper DeWitt thinks to herself, awaiting departure in the overcrowded International Terminal of the Philadelphia airport for an overseas business trip, to romantic Paris no less. She watched as her husband, Tosh, put his own suitcase into the trunk of a taxi the day before. He’d been telling her for months that he wasn’t happy, and though she still wants to believe it is just a phase, after a call to her mother from the Admiral’s Club, she can no longer deny that he’s left her, left their home, left their four-year-old daughter in her mother’s sole care.

Piper met Tosh when she was only twenty-two, just the way self-help books said she would—when she wasn’t looking. Now at forty, she wonders how, through all those years, they’d gotten to this place in their marriage. When her flight is canceled due to volcanic ash spreading from Iceland across Europe, and when a handsome stranger offers her an invitation to share a cab, she realizes she can take a departure from her own life. And after a day of living like a tourist in her own city, she hopes she can still find her way home …

    " Great writing - this is a short, short story. The ending is a bit stilted, but I did enjoy the quick read. "

    " Ugh, this is the second Jennifer Weiner book I've bought that was just a compilation of her old stuff. I thought this would be a nice short story. Guess I should've looked into it more before buying it on the kindle. "

    " I have read other books by Jennifer Weiner that I have enjoyed. This was just way, way too short. Not really long enough to develop characters or story line. Glad it was a free download for my kindle as it would have been a waste of money to pay for it. "

    " I was really disappointed in this short story. Not only did I not get anything out of it, but I didn't really like the characters. Don't read. "
