Leave Me

Leave Me

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

Meet Maribeth Klein
, a harried working mother who is so busy taking care of her husband and twins that she doesn’t even realise that she has had a heart attack.

But her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her. So Maribeth does the unthinkable – she packs a bag and leaves. Maribeth has always wondered who she is and where she comes from: and now's the time to find out. Now, far from the demands of family and career, she is finally able to own up to the secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves.

From the bestselling author of If I Stay and I Was Here comes a stunning new novel for Forman’s adult readers, an unflinching portrait of a woman confronting the joys and sorrows of marriage, motherhood and friendship.
