Description
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo comes an all-new audio production read by Julia Whelan, including a bonus conversation with Julia Whelan and Taylor Jenkins Reid, recorded exclusively for this edition.
"Have you ever heard of supernovas? They shine brighter than anything else in the sky and then fade out really quickly, a short burst of extraordinary energy. I like to think you and Ben were like that . . . in that short time, you had more passion than some people have in a lifetime."

Elsie Porter is an average twentysomething and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year's Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn't expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Ben cannot even wait twenty-four hours before asking to see her again. Within weeks, the two are head over heels in love. By May, they've eloped.

Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. Elsie hears the sirens outside her apartment, but by the time she gets downstairs, he has already been whisked off to the emergency room. At the hospital, she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met—and who doesn't even know Elsie exists.

Interweaving Elsie and Ben's charmed romance with Elsie and Susan's healing process, Forever, Interrupted will remind you that there's more than one way to find a happy ending.

        Starred review from April 22, 2013
        In her touching and powerful debut, Reid masterfully grabs hold of the heartstrings and doesn’t let go. A mere six months after their chance meeting at a pizza joint, Elsie Porter and Ben Ross impulsively elope, confident in the knowledge they’ll be happy forever. Nine days later, happily-ever-after evaporates when Ben’s bike collides with a truck, killing him instantly. Soon, Elsie is navigating the shoals of planning a funeral with Ben’s initially hostile mother, Susan, and learning how to live without her true love. The author beautifully weaves Ben and Elsie’s courtship throughout the narrative, showing the reader the deep love that has bloomed—and the utter capriciousness of the fate that has taken that away. As Elsie and Susan begin to heal, they offer each other strength borne of their shared experience—which helps each of them open doors, once again, to the possibility of love. A stunning first novel.

      • content: Julia Whelan narrates this portrait of love and grief with raw emotion that immediately pulls listeners in. Weeks after a meet cute, Elsie and Ben are in love. Five months later, they've eloped. Nine days after that, Elsie's world is shattered when Ben is hit by a truck and killed. Elsie not only has to face a new reality, but also a mother-in-law who doesn't even know she exists. A recently recorded conversation between Whelan and the author follows, in which the two reflect on how their careers have evolved. As Whelan describes a memory of her experience with this book, originally published in 2013, fans will recognize it as the likely inspiration for a moment she wrote into her own book THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.
