Description

The author of several blockbuster novels, Emily Giffin's Where We Belong delivers an unforgettable story of two women, the families that make them who they are, and the longing, loyalty and love that binds them together

Marian Caldwell is a thirty-six year old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door . . . only to find Kirby Rose, an eighteen-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian's perfectly constructed world—and her very identity—will be shaken to its core, resurrecting ghosts and memories of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that has come to define her.

For the precocious and determined Kirby, the encounter will spur a process of discovery that ushers her across the threshold of adulthood, forcing her to re-evaluate her family and future in a wise and bittersweet light. As the two women embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to recognize that where we belong is often where we least expect to find ourselves—a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.

    Loved it! Wish there were more books to read, I've read them all. They are easy to read and interesting enough that I had a hard time putting my ipad down to stop reading. As long as the author keeps writing, I'll keep reading her stuff!

    As with all Ms. Giffin's books, because i have read them all, I did not want this one to end. She is a talented writer that has the ability to make you feel for all the characters in her books. I couldn't put this one down because I wanted to find out what happened next. To me that is when I know I am reading a great book!!!!! Hope she has another coming out soon!!
