あらすじ・解説

An Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestseller, and a Goodreads Choice Award finalist.

“A laugh-out-loud funny, pitch-perfect novel that will have readers rooting for this unlikely, relatable, and totally lovable heroine, The Overdue Life of Amy Byler is the ultimate escape - and will leave moms everywhere questioning whether it isn’t time for a #momspringa of their own.” - New York Journal of Books

Overworked and underappreciated, single mom Amy Byler needs a break. So when the guilt-ridden husband who abandoned her shows up and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts his offer and escapes rural Pennsylvania for New York City.

Usually grounded and mild mannered, Amy finally lets her hair down in the city that never sleeps. She discovers a life filled with culture, sophistication, and - with a little encouragement from her friends - a few blind dates. When one man in particular makes quick work of Amy’s heart, she risks losing herself completely in the unexpected escape, and as the summer comes to an end, Amy realizes too late that she must make an impossible decision: stay in this exciting new chapter of her life, or return to the life she left behind.

But before she can choose, a crisis forces the two worlds together, and Amy must stare down a future where she could lose both sides of herself, and every dream she’s ever nurtured, in the beat of a heart.

特になし。

自分も育児をするが、すごく共感できることがあるわけでもなく、悪くもないが、特に心に残るようなお話でもなかった。

爽やかなコメディ

連休に雑事を片付けなからききました。ナレーターが素晴らしく、登場人物を演じ分けています。話し方でこんなに人物の違った個性を表せるなんて素晴らしい。発音も聞き取りやすいアメリカ英語です。話の内容も展開もわかりやすくてストレスなく楽しめました。

Enjoyable narration. Story is an easy read.

I listened to the audio version of this book, narrated by Amy McFadden. I enjoyed the narration. I felt McFadden conveyed the emotions of characters as described by the author. Her narration of Talia’s liveliness and Lena’s wit was spot on. The narration of the male voices was agreeable.

“A laugh-out-loud funny, pitch-perfect novel...” yada, yada. I do wonder why publicists continue to flog books with such exuberance. I rarely find books live up to such praise and my disappointment is greater when they don’t.

And that’s the situation I find myself in with THE OVERDUE LIFE OF AMY BYLER by Kelly Harms. The book is not bad; it’s at times better than OK, but I did find it an average read overall.

This is Amy Byler’s story, yet I found her to be one of the least interesting characters in the book. Amy’s journey from suburban mother with saintly status to a woman who experiences “life” and is reborn is not a new one. Like many other book characters before her, she takes advantage of a convenient set of circumstances to head off on a voyage of self-discovery. Her money woes are fixed, her childcare issues are resolved, men love her, people think she is so clever, she has a makeover that elevates her physical looks and yet she still retains that certain something that I suppose readers are meant to find endearing.

I found her friends Talia and Lena, and Daniel, her love interest, to be much more interesting. Further, I would have liked to know more about her husband John’s story. At what point does a man choose to leave his family, and especially in such a callous way? What made him want to come back 3 years later? I know we learn some of this throughout this book but I would have preferred more.

The book is an easy read and ticks the box as escapist fiction. It’s fluffy. Even trying to tackle serious issues, it never loses this fluffiness.

I tried

I couldn't get through this story. The characters were annoying in my opinion and the dialogue was over done with more explaining the characters traits and less showing with actions. the story didn't feel organic at all.

Simple and sweet!

The story has no big plot twist, or tons of drama. It’s simply just about life. Life of a single mom finding herself again. It was an enjoyable story. I think ninety percent of that is thanks to the narrator. Amy McFadden did such an amazing job.

Long trip w/great book!

On a trip across 2 states and back again in 24 hours, I listened and enjoyed this book immensely. Part of me wants a momspringa. Desperately. Just for a short time, but wow. What a gift for this very believable/relatable character!

Mumspringa should be the title

The narrator was good and the voices of the characters were well preformed. I'd recommend if you cannot be very focused (as it's easy to follow). 100% for teens or to read something light. Even good for people studying English (as it has easy vocabulary)

Light reading with a cocktail.

A bit slow in places, but light, enjoyable and relaxing. Perhaps a read next to the pool with a cocktail. Enjoyed the narration but I definitely did not find it laugh out loud material!

Slow starting book but gets much better

I almost gave up on this book because it started slowly, I wasnt connecting with the characters at first and the narrators voices sounded very similar so it was hard to discern who was talking until you understood each character. Once the book got moving it was pretty good. As a single mom who has had to sacrifice alot because my ex refuses to do his part, I can totally relate to some of this. Some of it was a little unrealistic and some was really fun. I would recommend it for a light summer read.

This. Book. Is. Awesome.

Whether you are a new mom, old mom, working mom, stay at home mom, any kind of mom period, this book is for you!!! It is an incredible story of the wonderful difficulties of motherhood and the break we all need! It is food for thought, it is laughter, it is drama, it is romance, it is just downright good. Probably one of my favorite reads! Real enough so that I can relate to the characters and lighthearted enough for me to laugh at least once during each chapter! It’s terrific. Thank you to the author and thank you to the narrator! Beautifully done.

Silly

None of the dialogue is credible.

I tried to stick with it, but it’s just too irritating.

At least two hours too long

This book dragged on for too long, otherwise it had the potential to be a good light read.

Never a dull moment #Mumspringa

Even without being a Mum, I could feel the emotional rollercoaster of this story and held on for dear life. From the opening chapter I was taken on a journey of laughter, longing, sadness and self-discovery. It is so easy to lose yourself these days (Mum or not) and this story even taught me a bit about myself - makes it the best kind of read.

Amy is the kind of person I can relate to. Being so lost in doing everything that you don’t necessarily need to be doing, that you forget to focus on yourself. Her happiness and passion for the smallest of things, to her love and adoration of her friends and family is admirable. She is written perfectly and I believe that there are many women, and men, out there who can relate to her martyring woes.

Daniel is the perfect embodiment of nerd, romantic, sweetheart and devout Dad that any woman would be lucky to have. His Latin jokes had me laughing every time. The bond between Amy and Daniel was evident from the first time he spoke to her.

Cory and Joe are the best and funniest kids I have read and I love their bond - through thick and thin. Their raw humour, very different personalities and perfect banter fits the story and the situations perfectly.

Tahlia and Lena - I actually have friends like these and now have a brand new appreciation for them. Their humour, quick wit, friendship and powerful love for Amy and her kids are amazing. They really bring the story together and allow for the outside perspective to peek in occasionally.

Matt is in a league of his own. Talented, witty, caring and intelligent - his Mum would definitely be proud of her son. His input into Amy’s life and the development of her Mumspringa and the way he himself inspired a trend for many is a beautiful underlay to the whole story.

Though not a conventional ending and one that many may not have expected, I loved this story and I would recommend it 100%. The author has delivered apt descriptions of location, place and space in various scenarios, good enough to sit the reader right there in the middle of the scene.

A perfect storm of emotions, excitement, adventure and love.
