How to Walk Away by Katherine Center

How To Walk AwayWhat a wonderful, mostly realistic account of a difficult situation. A young woman is coerced by her boyfriend to take a plane trip with him. He has it all worked out and despite the fact she is afraid to fly, guilts her into going with him. Then he crashes the plane and the story begins. There are some characters you will want to root for and some that you will want to strangle.

The only downside of the book for me was the skirting around many ethical issues (patient/therapist relationship, bullying, an uncertified pilot flying a plane). All were present but glossed over.

What I really liked about the book was the portrayal of Margaret, the main character. I can’t speak to how authentic her thoughts, actions and reactions after the crash might be, but Ms. Center certainly did not shy away from what appears to be an honest portrayal of someone left in Margaret’s situation.

I would recommend this book.

I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
