The Leaving audiobook
The Leaving: stories by Budge Wilson
(performed by Margaret Muriel Legere)
In the eleven short stories comprising The Leaving (1990), Budge Wilson, the popular author of Lorinda’s Diary and Thirteen Never Changes, explores growing up in a colourful but imperfect world from women’s points of view.
A pen pal halfway around the world, starting a diary, a favourite teacher’s romance with metaphors, the intricacies of family relationships, a high school reunion, the bittersweet taste of first love — all are fodder for stories that will be read over and over again, and to treasure for a lifetime.
The Leaving is also available in paperback from Fitzhenry & Whiteside.
