Sometimes you just have to walk away....
Maggie Harrison is a devoted wife and mother, always putting the needs of her family ahead of her own. Then, one day, without planning to, she drives away, leaving behind an indifferent husband and two sulking teenagers. Maggie goes off on a quest of self-exploration, enjoying adventures, meeting new people, and rediscovering her passions. For the first time in years, she dreams about what she wants out of life, and she realizes that her deteriorating marriage can no longer continue as it is. Can she and Andrew repair their floundering relationship, or is their marriage finally over?
Andrew Harrison likes his life to be in perfect order. He enjoys his work and status in the community, leaving Maggie to take care of everything at home. He knows his marriage isn't perfect, but after twenty-three years and two kids, whose marriage is? But when Maggie leaves without a word, he is forced to start paying more attention to his home life and his almost grown children, and he begins to do a little self-exploration of his own. Slowly, he begins to understand
what drove Maggie away, and how important she is in his life. Is it too late to resolve their differences and save their marriage? Or will Andrew lose Maggie forever?
What people are saying...
"From the stunning cover to the superb storytelling, Maggie's Turn quickly snagged me by the heart and kept me reading--and cheering Maggie on--right through to the end. Ms. Sletten's easy way with words made this one of my favorite Deanna Sletten books."
-- Ann Swann, Author
"Maggie's Turn is delightful! Who hasn't thought of just driving away? Well, Maggie actually does it - without planning, without malice, just drives away. Once again, Ms. Sletten has taken a difficult issue and written an enjoyable, thoughtful story."
