Living by Ear

Singer-songwriter Christine Daley hit the streets of Boston and became a minor celebrity - with a local radio hit - in the 90s, but a 'brief' career break to marry and start a family changed all that. Now, sixteen years later, she's a frustrated suburban housewife, struggling to reestablish her sense of identity.

"A quick-tempo novel that will strike a chord with women's fiction fans... fresh, poignant and funny." ~ Kirkus Reviews

Singer-songwriter Christine Daley hit the streets of Boston and became a minor celebrity—with a local radio hit—in the 90s, but a "brief" career break to marry and start a family changed all that. Now, sixteen years later, she's a frustrated suburban housewife, struggling to reestablish her sense of identity.

After filing for divorce, forty-six-year-old Chris quickly learns that the challenges she faces are even greater than anticipated. Her two teenage children suddenly seem to need their mom more than ever, and neither of them is thrilled about her getting back on the music scene. Meanwhile, her soon-to-be-ex-husband is throwing every possible obstacle in her way.

Adding to the stress is technological progress, which has radically changed both the music industry and the dating world. Is there room in this new mix for Chris?

"Mary Rowen has written one of the truest novels ever about Boston's indie rock world. Full of sharp details and vivid characters... It beautifully explores the question of what drives an artist and how that can or can't be reconciled with the straight world." ~ Brett Milano, Boston Rock Journalist
