Leave Me by Gayle Forman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Many thanks to Algonquin Books and NetGalley for trusting me with a free Kindle e-book in exchange for an honest review.
With a stack of other books awaiting reviews, and a few other unread, I was not looking for a new book to read.
The hook I could not ignore was in the description; "For every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home..." sentiments that I recently experienced.
"Leave Me" by Gayle Forman is a good read.
How can a woman "that has everything" just up and leave her family? The perspective of others about the lives of these same women are often inaccurate. Sometimes a wife, and / or mother tries to be perfect; everything to everyone, dying to leave.
This is a fictional story that strikes deep into the heart. Children who are curious about the parent(s) who gave them up, and parent(s) who hunger to meet the child they gave up for adoption are subplots running through "Leave Me."
I will recommend this book for our library collection.
