For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving right past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, for every woman who has ever dreamt of boarding a train to a place where no one needs constant attention meet Maribeth Klein. A harried working mother who s so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn t even realize that she s had a heart attack.Afterward, surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable she packs a bag and leaves. But, as is so often the case, once we get where we re going we see our lives from a different perspective. Far from the demands of family and career and with the help of liberating new friendships, Maribeth is finally able to own up to the secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves.With big-hearted characters husbands, wives, friends and lovers who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing the fears we re all running from. #1 New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Gayle Forman is a dazzling observer of human nature. She has written an irresistible novel that confronts the ambivalence of modern motherhood head-on and asks, what happens when a grown woman runs away from home?"
