How to Walk Away




From the author of Happiness for Beginners, a breathtaking novel about finding love and hope in unimaginable places.

Margaret Jacobson has a bright future ahead of her, with a fiancé and a promising career, until an accident on what should be one of the happiest days of her life takes it all away. 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 family secrets, heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect. How to Walk Away contains laughter in the face of tragedy, hilarity in black moments, and one of the most unforgettable love stories you will encounter.
