"A tension-filled yet ultimately humane story about hard-won second chances. Warm and wise, Maureen Brady's Getaway takes the reader on a suspenseful and memorable journey to the tenderest corners of the human heart."
--Aaron Hamburger, author of The View from Stalin's Head and Faith for Beginners
"Sensitive, sensual, and stirring. Getaway is a true page-turner, but one with heart and with context. I couldn’t put it down until I got to the end, not just to find out what happened, but also to discover who these intriguing and complex characters would develop into. An extremely satisfying read!"
--Danielle Ofri, author of What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear, and Editor-in-Chief, Bellevue Literary Review.
