From the best-selling author of If I Stay and I Was Here comes a stunning new novel for Forman's adult listeners, an unflinching portrait of a woman confronting the joys and sorrows of marriage, motherhood and friendship.
For every woman who has ever fantasised about driving past her exit on the motorway instead of going home to make 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 that she's had a heart attack. 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 often the case, once we get where we're going we see our lives from a different perspective.
Far away from the demands of family and career and with the help of liberating new friendships, Maribeth is finally able to own up to the secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves.
