Brooke | 11 comments I think she goes to work in a diner or a shop? At the end I think she goes back to her family. It was like she took a weird long vacation. I think she winds up in the town pretty randomly. I associate this book with Elizabeth Berg but I don't think it's written by her.

message 3: by Brooke (new)

Brooke | 11 comments No, it's definitely not that one. It's more of a Oprah book-club kind of book. A wife and mother gets fed up ... and sort of accidentally leaves her family behind.

Brooke | 11 comments Mona, you got it! I want to read it again now that I have kids. I have often wanted to run away since!

Mona Garg (k1721m) | 21 comments I'm glad :) And I can definitely relate to the lead character. I'm married with a 6 1/2 yr old daughter who's homeschooled. And there are days when I wish I could just get away or go on strike.
