Description
Have you ever wanted to walk out on your life?

One Friday morning, Emily realises that, somewhere in life, she has chosen the wrong path. She's stifled by her job as a New York lawyer, she barely sees her husband, James, and their attempts to start a family have proven unsuccessful.

So Emily escapes. She walks out of the office, turns her phone off, packs a bag and leaves New York. She doesn't even tell James she's leaving...

But when a new path leads back to her past, and an old lover, new problems arise. As Emily begins to carve out a new life, where does that leave everything and everyone she left behind?



Praise for Barbara Delinksy:

'Fans of Jodi Picoult will love this...a poignant family story' Daily Express

'Delinsky's writing is fluid and makes for a hard-to-put-down book as she deftly blends tense family drama with heavy political issues' Glamour

'...a sensitive exploration of the prejudices that many hold but few express...a page turner that asks serious questions about America's relationship with its past' The Times

'A really interesting and sometimes harrowing tale that makes for compelling reading' Sun
