Without knowing each other, and with lives that couldn't be more different, Kate and Emily head to the same point on the map: Heart Island, an idyllic place in the middle of a lake in the Adirondacks, owned for generations by Birdie Burke's family. The harsh and unyielding Birdie is at one with this island, which has a terrifying history all its own. She, too, has consequences to face.
Heartbroken is a tense, mesmerizing novel about the limits of dysfunctional families, of an island haunted by dark memories and restless ghosts, and of the all-too-real demons we must battle.

Can't even get into it
What would have made Heartbroken better?
I like a lot of her other books, but this is in a different style. I don't even know if I'll finish it.

an okay book - not as good as her first novel.
What did you like best about Heartbroken? What did you like least?
good character development - but - I was always waiting for "something" to happen.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I guess the most interesting was about "Birdie" the mother of the Heart family. The least interesting was about "Lulu" - a spoiled - beautiful teenager - and all of her "manipulations".
What aspect of Amanda Carlin’s performance would you have changed?
none - it was good
Was Heartbroken worth the listening time?
hummm............. I guess - a little slow. I wasn't as "anxious" to listen to it everyday (on my run) like I usually am with other really good novels.
Any additional comments?
Better off listening to Unger's first book "Beautiful Lies" - now that was an awesome page turner - I'm still "waiting" for her to write another one like that!
