Norma’s rating: 4.5 Stars!
HOW TO WALK AWAY by KATHERINE CENTER was an extremely uplifting, kind, and heartwarming novel that captured my heart and drew me in almost immediately. There is so much goodness within the pages of this book! This is a story filled with romance, forgiveness, hope, courage, love, and resilience.
KATHERINE CENTER delivers a well-written and engaging read here with interesting, honest and believable characters. I absolutely loved the voice of our main character, Margaret “Maggie” she was so strong-willed and at times comical. The witty banter that ensued between the characters was extremely enjoyable and made me smile quite a few times. Maggie’s sister, Kitty was also such a great character and I absolutely loved her resourcefulness and the love and support she showed to Maggie through her recovery.
This book was definitely an inspirational, entertaining, enjoyable, and unforgettable story that was a most welcome and refreshing read for me. The ending was bittersweet and very satisfying. This was my first novel that I have read by Katherine Center and it won’t be my last. Would recommend!

Brenda’s Traveling Sister Review
Brenda’s rating: 4 of 5 stars
Norma and I started off lost in a coulee with seven of our traveling sisters reading How To Walk Away. This story lead to another interesting and fun discussion amongst us as we dug deep into the layers and meaning to this story.
How to Walk Away is an inspirational heartwarming story told by our memorable main character Margaret who experiences a traumatic accident. It is Margaret’s story of recovery that focuses on second chances, acceptance and family support and love.
Katherine Center does a great job creating likable, interesting well-developed characters and we loved the dynamics between them and their relationships. We all really loved the dynamics between sisters Margaret and Kit and loved the humor and warmth Kit brought to the story.
Most of us loved the ending and were left lost in the inspirational, sunny sweet smelling lush coulee feeling so warm and happy with this story while one sister was left standing alone with a little too much sweetness that affected her enjoyment for this story till another sister joined her. We highly recommend for readers who like a lighter, inspiring feel-good story or for a nice change of pace from darker reads.
Thank you so much to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press, and Katherine Center or a copy to read and review.
