Audiobook............narrated by Ann Patchett...........touching, true.....her own personal story of relationship and love. ( )

This is an essay written by Ann Patchett exclusively for Audible, and read by her in the free audiobook. It's a memoir of the failed marriages in her life, from her grandmother's divorce to her mother's divorces to her divorce, and how they influenced the happy marriage that she eventually (much, much later) ended up in. As usual, Patchett's writing is character driven, but this time the character is herself. I didn't think there was any way I could be more in awe of this woman, but I am. ( )
