Leave me
Forman, Gayle2016
Meet Maribeth Klein, a harried working mother who is so busy taking care of her husband and twins that she doesn't even realise, working late one evening, that she has had a heart attack. Afterwards, 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. Far from the demands of family and career, and with the help of new friendships, she is finally able to own up to the secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves. With bighearted characters who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing the fears we are all running from. Gayle Forman 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?
