9780060539085: Good-bye and Amen: A Novel

In a summer cottage on the coast of Maine, an unlikely love was nurtured, a marriage endured, and a family survived. Now it is time for the children of that marriage to make peace with the wounds and the treasures left to them. And to sort out which is which.

The complicated marriage of the gifted Danish pianist Laurus Moss to the provincial American child of privilege Sydney Brant was a mystery to many who knew them, including their three children. Now Eleanor, Monica, and Jimmy Moss have to decide how to divide or share what Laurus and Sydney have left them without losing one another.

About the Author:

Beth Gutcheon is the critically acclaimed author of eight previous novels: The New Girls, Still Missing, Domestic Pleasures, Saying Grace, Five Fortunes, More Than You Know, Leeway Cottage, and Good-bye and Amen. She is the writer of several film scripts, including the Academy-Award nominee The Children of Theatre Street. She lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

Beth Gutcheon's sequel to the novel LEEWAY COTTAGE is ideally suited to the audiobook format. Although helpful, it's not necessary to have read the earlier work in order to understand and enjoy GOOD-BYE AND AMEN. The continuing story of the Moss family, following the parents' deaths, is told in a series of interviews. Each character is introduced before speaking, and every incident is developed from several points of view. Narrator Joyce Bean displays an impressive range of voices and accents that succeed in giving a clearly defined identity to each character. These voices, along with the introductions, allow the listener to follow the story with relative ease. Author and narrator combine to create a thoroughly enjoyable audiobook.
