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.

    Read this prior to reading the first book, and it still made sense to me even after. This is a good story, that can be heavy at times, lighthearted at others, but a story about love, compassion, and most of all, how someone's life event can change the corse of so many other people's life. Recommend!!

    I loved this story! I think the author made the characters so intriguing and interesting that I couldn't wait to see what happened with them next. Although I figured out the "secret" before it was revealed, how the reveal happened was entertaining enough that I wasn't disappointed! I laughed out loud, smiled a lot, cried and had that all-is-right-with-the-world feeling while I was reading. Very entertaining!
  • Surprisingly good

    I usually find myself skimming through "boring" sections of most books but I have read two thirds of this book and I have not skipped any paragraphs. Sometimes I reread pages to recall the relationships between characters, especially if I haven't read the book for a few days. I haven't read any major climactic parts but still the story is enjoyable in it's simplicity.
