Book Review ~ How to Walk Away by Katherine Center

How to Walk Away
by Katherine Center

From the author of Happiness for Beginners comes an unforgettable love story about finding joy even in the darkest of circumstances.

Margaret Jacobsen has a bright future ahead of her: a fiancé she adores, her dream job, 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 one tumultuous moment.

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 long-held family secrets, devastating heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect.

How to Walk Away is Katherine Center at her very best: an utterly charming, hopeful, and romantic novel that will capture reader’s hearts with every page.

Let me start off by saying that this book was totally unexpected and completely surprising! However, I am at a complete loss of words when it comes to giving a synopsis of this story because I don’t want to give a single thing away, so I won’t….just read the blurb as it really does sum up this book to a tee.  To say that I totally loved this book seems so generic, but honestly, I really did love this emotionally charged book and it is impossible to say anything negative about it.  Not only was it an easy read, the story was captivating and utterly charming.  From the very first chapter, I was hooked and literally could not put this one down for even a second. 

How to Walk Away is emotional and heartbreaking but it is also funny and uplifting.  It is such a beautiful story about dealing with the hand that fate has dealt you and along the way finding true love, happiness and acceptance of things you can’t change.  Margaret was an easy character to connect to, and I found myself wanting her to not only have the best life possible but to also have a life full of love and acceptance.

Katherine Center is a talented storyteller and I loved her style of writing just as much as her characters.  I highly recommend this beautiful story.
