9780060587246: The Breakdown Lane

Every family has it's problems - Julie Gillis collects them. She's used to telling the readers of her agony column what to do, but somehow she's missed the warning signs at home. A loving mother and a good wife, she is shattered when her husband Leo walks out, leaving her to bring up two teenagers and a small daughter alone. But even tougher times lie ahead - and Julie's going to need all she's got to keep her family together and start again. With her trademark insight, Jacquelyn Mitchard delicately unravels the complications of human emotion within a story that is compelling as it is inspiring.

About the Author:

Jacquelyn Mitchard is a former newspaper columnist and now lives in Madison, Wisconsin with her husband and seven children

From AudioFile:

Anna Fields evokes an earthy, perceptive woman you'd enjoy having across the backyard fence. Fields has a knack for creating characters with vocal mannerisms and inflections that are authentic. This is especially true in Fields's performance of Julie, Mitchard's protagonist, an advice columnist for a Wisconsin paper who unexpectedly finds that no one is more in need of help than she. Her husband abruptly leaves her and their three children to go find himself (and a younger, more malleable mate) in a commune. Soon after, Julie learns she has multiple sclerosis. The blows keep coming, but even in Julie's many unheroic moments, Fields's humor and good nature maintain a sympathy she always merits.
