Run Away With Barbara Delinsky's Escape

Emily Aulenbach is an idealistic young lawyer who once dreamed of representing victims of corporate abuse. Instead, she now spends her days in a cubicle arguing victims of corporate greed out of their rightful claims. One day, she snaps—without telling anyone where she is going, she heads north to Bell Valley, New Hampshire, the small town where she spent a life-altering summer during her college years. There, she will set out to forge new relationships with lovers, long-lost friends and the person she once wanted to become. Raising powerful questions about the paths we take in life, Escape by Barbara Delinsky will get your book club talking.
