For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, for every woman who has ever dreamed 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 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 she gets to where she's going, she sees her life 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 secrets she has been keeping from those she loves, and from herself. With big-hearted characters who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing our fears. Gayle Forman, a dazzling observer of human nature, has written an irresistible novel that confronts the ambivalence of modern motherhood head-on.

Written in the voice of Mary Beth, who has crafted her identity and vision of herself and her self-sufficient life, only to have it upended, shaken, and shifted. Her self-serving and controlling personhood is transformed, softened, and her identity reformed, by events and relationships, new and old. This is the story of her journey, or rather its beginning. Many women, with family, career, identity, marriage, and friendship demands, will see themselves in Mary Beth and know her story well. This is not great literature but a very relatable story with lessons. A good listen—
