Belong to Me
Synopses & Reviews
Cornelia Brown surprised herself when she was gripped by the sudden, inescapable desire to move to the suburbs with her husband. Her mettle is quickly tested by her impeccably dressed, overly judgmental neighbor Piper Truitt--the embodiment of everything Cornelia feared she'd find in suburbia. With Lake, another recent arrival, Cornelia shares a love of literature and old movies--as she forms an instant bond with this warm yet elusive woman and her perceptive, brilliant young son Dev.
Acclaimed bestselling author Marisa de los Santos's literary talents shine in the complex interactions she creates between three unforgettable women, deftly entangling her characters in a web of trust, betrayal, love, and loss that challenges them in ways they never imagined.
“Marisa de los Santoss Belong to Me is my favorite discovery of the past years: a terrific page-turner thats also poignant, funny, surprising and deeply heartfelt.”
“Complex, engaging, and surprisingly moving.”
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 womens fiction that invites discussion as it touches the heart—and the ideal companion to de los Santoss previous blockbuster, Love Walked In.
Everyone has secrets. Some we keep to protect ourselves, others we keep to protect those we love.
