The author of five blockbuster novels, Emily Giffin, 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.

    " Normally I don't cry while reading books ... but I cried during this one. I think the main reason is that I just had a baby at Thanksgiving and the thought of giving him up for adoption and not hearing from him for 18 years was so painful to think about. This is a great story of self-discovery for both the birth mother and child. I liked that each chapter flipped back and forth between the two women so that we had the opportunity to see both of their perspectives. "

    " Partly set in St. Louis, which was kinda fun. Some moments felt real, others felt predictable or typical. "

    " Emily Giffin's best, in my estimation. Adopted 18-year-old Kirby searches out her biological mother, then her father while still remaining faithful to her adopted family. Told from Kirby's viewpoint, in counterpoint with her biological mother, Marian's, viewpoint. Kirby's outcome is good: she is able to begin building relationship with both biological parents without estranging her "real parents." "
