Summary, etc.:
From the author of Happiness for Beginners comes an unforgettable audiobook 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 an audiobook that is both hopeful and hilarious; truthful and wise; tender and brave.

    *Starred Review* Twenty-eight-year-old Margaret Jacobson is on top of the world. She's just bought a condo, she's in the running for a new job, and she's certain her boyfriend, Chip, is about to propose. So when Chip, who is on the cusp of getting his pilot's license, asks her to come flying with him in a small plane, Margaret swallows her fears and agrees to go. When Chip proposes, Margaret is thrilled, until it starts raining and the wind and Chip's relative inexperience cause the plane to crash. Chip emerges without a scratch, but Margaret is trapped inside the crushed passenger side of the plane when a fire breaks out. Though firefighters quickly put out the blaze, they have to cut Margaret out of the plane and she's rushed to the hospital. What follows flips Margaret's life on its head, forcing her to reevaluate relationships and leading to both unexpected connections and revelations. Center (Happiness for Beginners, 2015) knows how to keep the pages turning, ensuring readers will be completely swept up in Margaret's story. With its appealing characters and wisdom about grappling with life's challenges, Center's sixth novel has all the makings of a breakout hit. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
