I started How to Walk Away by Katherine Center about a year ago when I was stranded somewhere with only the first chapter to read. I had read somewhere that it was a good summer choice and had downloaded an excerpt to my Kindle. All this time passed, however, without my finding the book at the library (and it has to be the most amazing book for me to purchase it!). However, earlier this week, the book was on the shelf at the library and I grabbed it. It was, indeed, a great summer read, but also a great cold-evening-in-front-of-the-fire read. In fact, I read the whole thing last night. There’s nothing deep here, but it’s reminiscent of Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You. Margaret has a seemingly perfect life – great boyfriend who is about to propose, a great prospective job, and everything seems to be headed into a great future for her. However, as her fiance proposes while piloting her in a private plane, the plane crashes, killing all of these dreams at once. The novel focuses on Margaret’s recovery in the hospital, her relationships with her family, her fiance, and her physical therapist. As much as I hate to say it since it’s a bit cheesy, it’s a great read and well worth picking up if you like a quick and satisfying beachy read.
