    Overview

    It's every woman's fantasy: to pack a bag and leave everything behind.

    Every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, and 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.

    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 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 able to own up to secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves.

    With bighearted 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. 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?

    How do we reinvent ourselves when we can t even recognize the body we are in? Can you know where you re headed if you don t know where you came from? These are the questions faced by the prickly Maribeth, the complex and fascinating character at the center of Leave Me. In her first novel for adults, Forman reminds the reader that the answer to both questions involves getting to the heart of the matter. --Jodi Picoult, author of Leaving Time

    Told with humor and heart, Leave Me reveals that sometimes you have to leave everything you treasure in order to find your way back home. A moving testament to the persistence of love and the healing power of forgiveness. --Tayari Jones, author of Silver Sparrow

    Here s to complicated women and the authors who write them! Whatever the age of her characters, Gayle Forman is a compassionate, gifted observer of women s lives. --Gabrielle Zevin, author of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry"

    In an enthralling novel reminiscent of Anne Tyler s Ladder of Years, a woman who recently suffered a heart attack runs away to recover her equilibrium. --O, The Oprah Magazine

    This surprising, compassionate story brings to life the secret, guilty fantasy of many overworked moms. --People
