"[Listen to the Marriage] is a slim yet immersive story." --Jessica Zack, San Francisco Chronicle"A beneficial read for any couple in a long-term relationship or marriage. The blush of the honeymoon may be long over, and despite hurt and pain--or if there is none--this novel can be a guide to discover if their partnership is viable or to help strengthen it." --Nancy Carty Lepri, New York Journal of Books"Excellent . . . Readers with relationship experience will find here the realistic issues of compromise, sacrifice, communication and also much that is new in terms of how to nurture a relationship . . . Deeply engaging and insightful, [Listen to the Marriage] is enthusiastically recommended for anyone who has ever been (or wishes to be) married." --Patrick Sullivan, Library Journal"A nuanced portrait of what makes a marriage work . . . It takes dedication, self-reflection, and lots and lots of communication . . . Emotionally intelligent and deeply felt." --Publishers Weekly"This surprisingly dramatic, voyeuristic novel is based in part on the author's own experiences, lending it an intimate, authentic feel." --Good Housekeeping

"Listen to the Marriage shows Osborn is . . . able to home in on the heart of a story and reveal its characters' motivations . . . The novel is a page-turner, with the reader thrust into the characters' most vulnerable moments . . . Osborn's tale focuses on a single relationship, and in doing so, examines the power of empathy and invites readers to consider how they relate to others in their own lives." --Carla Jean Whitley, BookPage"[A] slim, swift-reading novel . . . The book's page-turning drama . . . is driven by a race: Will the characters learn enough in time to stay together?" --Lou Fancher, The Mercury News
