Five Stages of Falling In Love by Rachel Higginson- Audible Review
The Five Stages of Falling in Love
- Narrated by:
- Length: 8 hrs and 8 mins
- Unabridged Audiobook
Elizabeth Carlson is living in the pits of hell – also known as grief. Her husband of eight years, the father of her four children and the love of her life, died from cancer. Grady’s prognosis was grim even from the start, but Liz never gave up hope he would survive. How could she, when he was everything to her? Six months later she is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and get the kids to school on time. Both seem impossible. Everything seems impossible these days.
When Ben Tyler moves in next door, she is drowning in sorrow and pain, her children are acting out, and the house is falling apart. She has no time for curious new friends or unwanted help, but Ben gives her both. And he doesn’t just want to help her with yard work or cleaning the gutters. Ben wants more from Liz. More than she’s capable of ever giving again.
As Liz mourns her dead husband and works her way through the five stages of grief, she finds there’s more of her heart to give than she thought possible. And as new love takes hold, she peels away the guilt and heartache and discovers there’s more to life than death.
LOUISA’S 4 STAR AUDIBLE REVIEW
As I have said before, I usually only listen to audible books that I have read before, but when the chance to listen to this book came about, I jumped on it.
This is my first time listening/reading this author.
I have to say that this audible was absolutely heart-wrenching at times. Not best to listen while driving (which I often do). The Five Stages of Falling in Love is a beautiful and often heartbreaking journey. Liz loses her husband and is left with 4 children to raise. (As a mother of 4 children, I couldn’t stop imagining my life without my husband so this often hit very close to home for me.)
She meets Ben, her neighbor in the most hysterical way! He’s exactly what she and her children need. A friend, someone to be on her side. He is truly swoon worthy, you can tell Ben’s feelings are different than Liz’s but he’s so sweet and understanding. Just a beautiful journey to watch. He’s not overbearing but a good man, not that he would ever though his life’s love would be Liz. Just perfect!
This is also my first time with Christine Marshall as narrator and I have to say, you could hear the sadness in her voice as if she was Liz. She was perfectly on point with her narration.
