How to Walk Away by Katherine Center

Margaret Jacobsen has a bright future ahead of her: a fiancé she adores, her dream job, 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 one tumultuous moment.

In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Margaret must figure out how to move forward on her own terms while facing long-held family secrets, devastating heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect.

Another instalment as I go through Katherine Center’s backlist. How to Walk Away was published in 2018.

Margaret Jacobsen has it all, or so it seems. Everything changes when an accident lands her in the hospital.

Without going into too much detail about this story suffice to say Maggie embarks on a journey that takes her to places she never imagined, to revisit relationships and past hurts. It's a story about the dynamics of family and new friends. Maggie’s story is told from her pov, giving this reader a glimpse into her thoughts and feelings. It’s a difficult time to say the least.

While dealing with some serious subject matter Katherine Center has once again written a heartfelt story with wit, nice banter and some laugh out loud scenes. It’s a story of forgiveness, unexpected changes and hope.

I listened to the audiobook, though I did read some from my print copy. Both of which are excellent formats.

This book was part of my 2023 Reading off my shelf challenge with the audiobook obtained via CloudLibrary.
