Listen for the Weather

Justine Delaney Wilson

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Every act has a consequence. Every marriage has a breaking point. Is this theirs?

Every act has a consequence. Every marriage has a breaking point.

Beth Rogers and her family have settled well into their new life in New Zealand, far from the stifling containment of the life they knew at home in Ireland.

Everything is idyllic.

The children are happy and settled. Beth's marriage to Steve, and their love for each other, seems solid.

Until a bombshell lands, in the form of a letter Steve receives from a woman from his past. In the envelope is a photograph of a three-year-old girl -- Beth and Steve's papered-over past has caught up with them, in the shape of this child ...

Beth forgave Steve once before -- can she do it again? Does Steve want her to?

Listen for the Weather is the story of a marriage. It's a story about consequences. And how we make our own weather.
