Maggie's Turn Book Review

Maggie's Turn by Deanna Lynn Sletten

About The Book:
Sometimes you just have to walk away....to rediscover who you are. 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 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? 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?

My Thoughts:
This is an amazing book, and I am so glad I was introduced to this author! And a big shout out to her, she lives only a few cities away from me here in Minnesota! Woot woot! This is a great story about self discovery and reaching a point in your life where you want more, and need more, and what to do to get it! Amazing characters and great storyline. I will definitely be reading more from this author!
