Another Piece of My Heart

 

“A moving story peopled with nuanced, sympathetic characters.” —Booklist

 

 

Andi has spent much of her adult life looking for the perfect man, and at thirty-seven, she’s finally found him. Ethan—divorced with two daughters, Emily and Sophia—is a devoted father and even better husband. Always hoping one day she would be a mother, Andi embraces the girls like they were her own. But in Emily’s eyes, Andi is an obstacle to her father’s love, and Emily will do whatever it takes to break her down. When the dynamics between the two escalate, they threaten everything Andi believes about love, family, and motherhood—leaving both women standing at a crossroad in their lives … and in their hearts.

 

“You will laugh and cry as you read…It’s that good.”—Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of Lucia, Lucia and the Valentine Series

Opening an eye, she looks at the clock—4:02 A.M. It’s always four in the morning, these nights when she awakes, when she cannot get back to sleep. She turns her head to see Ethan, his back to her, his body rising and falling in deep sleep.

Praise for

Another Piece of My Heart

 

“A clear-eyed look at our idealized notions of love, family, and motherhood…Green is at her finest with this compelling novel. Deeper, more complicated, and more ambitious than her previous books, it will keep readers on edge as they wait to see how these tense family dynamics play out.”—Library Journal (starred review)

 

“Told with her trademark sensitivity and insight, Green’s latest offers everything readers expect from her: a moving story peopled with nuanced, sympathetic characters.” —Booklist

 

“Green ramps up the emotional stakes.” —Kirkus Reviews

 

“Fans of Green’s female-centric bestsellers will relish this latest family melodrama…Green paints a clear-eyed portrait of the challenges of step-parenting while offering hope that in even the most damaged relationships, dreams can come true.” —People

 

“A warm bath of a novel that draws you in…Green’s sympathetic portrayals of Andi and Emily resonate.” —USA Today

 

“Could be the biggest novel of the bestselling writer’s career.” —The Connecticut Post


“Green finds honesty in [Andi and Emily’s] alternating voices.” —Publishers Weekly

 

“Green creates emotionally nuanced characters, first setting the scene from Andi’s view, then shifting to Emily’s first-person perspective. Green creates sympathy for Emily, by giving her hurt and insecurity an authentic teenage voice. While the character details of Green’s family drama are unique, the emotions ring true and universal.” —The New Jersey Star-Ledger

 

“Jane Green surpasses herself in her latest novel, a powerful and moving story of a family on the edge of emotional wreckage, and how love truly can—when combined with strength, patience and a little bit of grace—conquer all. I flew through it, unable to sleep until I knew how it turned out. That’s how much she made me care.” —Dani Shapiro, bestselling author of Devotion

“Jane Green writes of true love, instant families and the heartache of happily ever after with skill, grace and wisdom. You will laugh and cry as you read Andi’s story, and you’ll be inspired to pick up the phone and call your best friend to read a scene aloud. It’s that good. It’s that riveting. It’s essential reading for the modern woman looking for connection and escape.”—Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of Lucia, Lucia and the Valentine Series

Another Piece of My Heart is an ambitious, at times devastating, and always wise novel that conveys the endless ways in which family both destroys us and saves us, very often at the same time.”—Jonathan Tropper, bestselling author of This Is Where I Leave You
