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.

  • A real page turner

    I've read all of Emily Giffin's books and I am a fan. I am surprised I finished this book in 2 days and wanted it to be more than 384 pages. Her writing is so seamless and flows so well that I can't put the book down. It was a warm story with a warm ending. Really glad to have bought the hard copy as well as the ebook!
  • Disappointing

    I love Emily Giffin's books for being real and touching and holding my attention start to finish. While this book was all those things...I found the ending sorely lacking. I really hate that Marian ends up alone at 36! I half wonder if Giffin plans does this because she is planning a follow up book, similar to the Something Borrowed and Love the One You're With combo...I certainly hope so, because that is the only thing that would come close to redeeming this seriously depressing ending.

    Amazing book!! Very well written! Caused me to buy all her other books (upon buying this one I had no idea she had more and that they sort of follow each other!)
  • Good read!

    Easy to read and a heart warming story. As a new mom, I cried my eyes out at some parts - keep a tissue nearby!
  • Great read!

    This book was excellent. Couldn't put it down. I like how Emily Giffin bounces back and forth between the two main character points of view (like Heart of the Matter). First Emily Giffin book though that doesn't end all happy and fluffy. Can't wait for the sequal!
  • Could have been more surprising.

    The ending wasn't as good as I thought it would be. But the book itself was entertaining :) A recommended book to read on break time.

    Loved the book. Another reliable page turner. Love how Giffin brings back other characters from previous books so that you can see where they are at now! Enjoyed it from cover to cover.
