Leave Me by Gayle Forman

Ever wanted to drive away from demanding domestic chaos?
Yep, we all have our moments and in Leave Me, Meribeth is overwhelmed with toddler twins, a demanding job and a husband who does not share the domestic load.
She is so busy juggling her life she ignores the symptoms of a heart attack which is only picked up by chance, and then she is sent home weak and unable to cope after bypass surgery.
Meribeth reaches breaking point; leaves, and makes a new life in which to recover and take stock of her situation and marriage.
She also begins to explore unresolved issues from her early life while making friends with a sympathetic doctor with issues of his own.
Gayle Forman has formerly written mostly Young Adult novels, including the very successful and movie-adapted If I Stay.
