Description

For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, for 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. Afterward, 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 so often the case, once she gets to where she's going, she sees her life from a different perspective. Far from the demands of family and career and with the help of liberating new friendships, Maribeth is finally able to own up to secrets she has been keeping from those she loves, and from herself. With big-hearted characters who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing our fears. Gayle Forman, a dazzling observer of human nature, has written an irresistible novel that confronts the ambivalence of modern motherhood head-on.

Professional reviews

"This audiobook begins with a jolt: Maribeth is having a heart attack, but she's too harried to notice it. Eva Kaminsky's narration is at once uniquely emotional and quietly familiar. When Maribeth decides to leave the chaotic atmosphere of her family to look after herself and fully heal, the listener can understand her need for solitude. Each character in this novel has his or her own voice, thanks to Kaminsky's skill. Personalities emerge with nuances of timbre and tone. Some inflections are more believable than others--children, for example, can sound too precious at times--but these are bumps in an otherwise engaging road. Listeners will be reluctant to leave.
