Leave Me

913RCLp+BVL.jpg“For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of making dinner, for anyone who has ever dreamed of boarding a train to a place where no one needs constant attention, here is 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.” And so Leave Me by Gayle Forman begins. Shortly after her heart attack, subsequent bypass surgery, and recovery, Maribeth ups and leaves her family. She makes a new life for herself in Pittsburgh and confronts her adoption and marital issues from afar. I enjoyed Leave Me very much. While leaving her young twins seems implausible, the story works and is a pleasant read. Not too deep, but just right for those who try to juggle it all.
