How to Walk Away Playlist
This summer I did a fair bit of road-tripping, driving to bookstores and book events, and as I sang along to songs on my iTunes, I found that certain songs just SOUNDED like moments in How to Walk Away. So just for fun, here are some of them. If I were in charge of the soundtrack for How to Walk Away, these songs would be on it.
