Description

"Marisa de los Santos's Belong to Me is my favorite discovery of the past years: a terrific page-turner that's also poignant, funny, surprising and deeply heartfelt."
—Harlan Coben

"Complex, engaging, and surprisingly moving."
—Boston Globe

The sensational New York Times bestseller from Marisa de los Santos, Belong to Me is a gift for readers, an enchanting, luminous novel about the accidents, both big and small, that affect our choice of friend, lover, and spouse. A story centered around three very different suburban neighbors and what it truly means to "belong" to someone, this eye-opening, unforgettable book is the perfect book club selection—beautifully written, smart and sophisticated women's fiction that invites discussion as it touches the heart—and the ideal companion to de los Santos's previous blockbuster, Love Walked In.

        March 31, 2008
        Cornelia Brown, heroine of de los Santos's bestselling Love Walked In
        , returns in a gracefully written if formulaic sophomore effort. Cornelia and her husband, Teo, move to suburban Philadelphia, where she finds it difficult to fit into the sorority-like atmosphere. Despite a bevy of domestic dramas (planning a family among them), Cornelia's first-person chapters are the quietest of the three points of view. Seemingly shallow and vicious, neighbor Piper shows her kinder side as she struggles through her best friend's fight against cancer. Though the extreme of Piper's two-facedness isn't convincing, her moments of sincerity invite genuine empathy. Cornelia also yields narrative time to Dev, a precocious teenager whose father is missing and whose mother develops a friendship with Cornelia. Dev's connection to the story is initially unclear, though he does grow close to Clare, a troubled teenager with an unconventional connection to Cornelia, and a late-breaking development grounds his role more firmly. Though each story line is a good read on its own, they don't always braid nicely, and while the predictable plot wanders into sappiness, the prose is polished and the suburban travails are familiar enough that fans of the women's fiction and higher-brow mommy lit will relate.
