Like Forrest Gump, the narrator of Leaving gives you a roller coaster ride into pivotal social events of the Sixties and Seventies - the beginnings of the civil rights struggle in New York and Detroit; the assassinations of President Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King; the women's movement. She struggles with the prescribed roles for women and good girls long before there were words for what was happening. She's a risk taker: leaving a small town in West Virginia for New York City; leaving a first marriage to go out on her own; surviving a mental breakdown; facing her second husband's homosexuality; and again, leaving to build a life that comes from within.
