Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs. 57 Min.


Ten Minutes from Home is the poignant account of how a suburban New Jersey family struggles to come together after being shattered by tragedy. In this searing, sparely written, and surprisingly wry memoir, Beth Greenfield shares what happens in 1982 when, as a 12-year-old, she survives a drunk-driving accident that kills her younger brother Adam and best friend Kristin.

As the benign concerns of adolescence are replaced by crushing guilt and grief, Beth searches for hope and support in some likely and not-so-likely places (General Hospital, a kindly rabbi, the bottom of a keg), eventually discovering that while life is fragile, love doesn't have to be.

Ten Minutes from Home exquisitely captures both the heartache of lost innocence and the solace of strength and survival.
