Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, read by Kimberly Farr.
A mother comes to visit her daughter in hospital after having not seen her in many years. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront her past, uncovering long-buried memories of a profoundly impoverished childhood, and her present, as the fa├žade of her new life in New York begins to crumble, awakening her to the reality of her faltering marriage and her unsteady journey towards becoming a writer.
From Lucy's hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past and the memories - however painful - that bind a family together.

Brilliant book and brilliant performance

Elizabeth Stroud has written an intimate book with such strength that it will stay with me for many years. I'm am already on to Olive Kitteridge.

Beautiful writing..

So easy to listen to and absorb. The narration added substance to this internal story. I understood the character's wistful and opaque memories both sad and unforgettable. I am very glad I have read this book. It is on my favourites list.
