From the author of Happiness for Beginners comes an unforgettable love story about finding joy even in the darkest of circumstances.
Margaret Jacobsen is just about to step into the bright future she’s worked for so hard and so long: a new dream job, a fiancé she adores, and the promise of a picture-perfect life just around the corner. Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in a brief, tumultuous moment.
In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Maggie must confront the unthinkable. First there is her fiancé, Chip, who wallows in self-pity while simultaneously expecting to be forgiven. Then, there's her sister Kit, who shows up after pulling a three-year vanishing act. Finally, there's Ian, her physical therapist, the one the nurses said was too tough for her. Ian, who won't let her give in to her pity, and who sees her like no one has seen her before. Sometimes the last thing you want is the one thing you need. Sometimes we all need someone to catch us when we fall. And sometimes love can find us in the least likely place we would ever expect.
How to Walk Away is Katherine Center at her very best—a masterpiece of a novel that is both hopeful and hilarious; truthful and wise; tender and brave.
Book Review: How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
This book follows my favorite genre of strong female protagonist.
This is the story of Margaret who has a plane accident and her life changes one Valentine Day in what was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. Over the course of a year, Margaret loses all. She loses her job, her freedom yet she persevere. She falls in love. She discover a new passion. She overcome the obstacles.
This book has romance but it doesn’t overpower. I felt this story was a coming of age story where Margaret completely shifts her life and carves her own path.
My feels: I absolutely loved this book. This was such a gem and it made it to my Top 5 Summer Book Picks. This book is a must read.
