Publisher Comments:

From the New York Times bestselling author of JEMIMA J, and THE BEACH HOUSE, comes Jane Greens most emotional and powerful novel yet:  a story that explores the complications of a woman marrying into a ready-made family, and the true meaning of motherhood.

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 Emilys eyes, Andi is an obstacle to her fathers 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.

ANOTHER PIECE OF MY HEART is a novel that illuminates the nuances and truths about relationships and is Jane Green at her absolute best.

Review:

"In New York Times bestseller Green's latest (after Promises to Keep), Andi faces the difficult decision of remaining in a marriage that is being ripped apart by husband Ethan's rebellious teen daughter, Emily. Though the wedding happened five years ago, Emily hasn't accepted her father's remarrying and repeatedly starts fights at home that have brought Andi to the breaking point. Emily's rage is further fueled by drinking, drugs, and reckless casual sex, so her pregnancy comes less as a surprise than as the final straw for this floundering family. Andi's love for Ethan and his younger daughter, Sophia, coupled with her desire for a big family and her identity as a mother, have kept Andi in the marriage, but each day Emily tears away another piece of Andi's heart. Andi can't break through her own upbringing and generational ties to understand what's behind Emily's backlashes and bad choices. Though Andi and Emily are both highly self-involved, making it difficult to like either of them, Green finds honesty in their alternating voices. 250,000 first printing. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

I am reading another Jane Green Book, The Fractured Marriage, and enjoying it. This one sounds similar in some ways but I'm sure it's one I'd also enjoy. I like Green's writing and the insight she
brings to her novels about women and families.
