"It isn't the big things Peter does that make her want to leave him; it's more the smaller things, like sticking her in his pocket in the middle of a thought - these demeaning, shrinking things he does that make her feel as trivial as a sneeze."

This is the first book of Louise Penney's that I have read or listened to and I love it. The audio book is fantastic. I find myself sitting in the driveway continuing to listen to it after I arrive home from my commute. Can't wait to start with her first Inspector Gamache book and listen to them all in order.

MrBook Sounds like a book for you, @BookBabe ! 3y
