In Listen to Me, Pittard takes a slice, a sample from a marriage and examines it under a microscope with great respect for both partners. Totally relatable, sad, and encouraging all at once, I highly recommend this story of a husband and wife on a car trip. Trust me, it's way more than that.

Mark and Maggie's annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they're on the road, it's late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to one another. Adding to the stress, Maggie recently mugged at gunpoint is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife. Forced to stop for the night at a remote inn, completely without power, Maggie's paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But when Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it's Maggie who takes control.
