Leaving

Leaving
$28.99

Roxanne says: Robinson makes the old story of high school sweethearts reuniting complex.  By no means an upper, but living with these characters feels like the opera that the character Warren escapes into, and that tragedy based on honor is something to be witnessed and admired.

"I never thought I'd see you here," Sarah says. Then she adds, "But I never thought I'd see you anywhere."

Sarah and Warren's college love story ended in a single moment. Decades later, when a chance meeting brings them together, a passion ignites--threatening the foundations of the lives they've built apart. Since they parted in college, each has married, raised a family, and made a career. When they meet again, Sarah is divorced and living outside New York, while Warren is still married and living in Boston.

Seeing Warren sparks an awakening in Sarah, who feels emotionally alive for the first time in decades. Still, she hesitates to reclaim a chance at love after her painful divorce and years of framing her life around her children and her work. Warren has no such reservations: he wants to leave his marriage but can't predict how his wife and daughter will react. As their affair intensifies, Sarah and Warren must confront the moral responsibilities of their love for their families and each other.

Leaving charts a passage through loyalty and desire as it builds to a shattering conclusion. In her boldest and most powerful work to date, Roxana Robinson demonstrates her "trademark gifts as an intelligent, sensitive analyst of family life" (Wendy Smith, Chicago Tribune) in an engrossing exploration of the vows we make to one another, the tensile relationships between parents and their children, and what we owe to others and ourselves.
