New York Times Bestseller

From the author of Not My Daughter comes the story of Emily Aulenbach, 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. She no longer connects with much in her life, period, with the exception of three things—her computer, her BlackBerry, and her watch. 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.

"A first-rate storyteller who creates believable, sympathetic characters who seem as familiar as your neighbors." 
The Boston Globe

    Escape was a delightfully uncomplicated love story in which I took pleasure in reading. The storyline was somewhat predictable but then what good story isn't. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
  • Great Read!

    This book was another of Delinsky's great summer reads. I could not put it down. She always brings me home as she sets her book in New England.
  • Great, but the blackberry ad is kinda annoying.

    By Wonderful for me!
    Just downloaded then sample, I found the first chapter filled with 11 'Blackberry'. But great book, with attractive language.
