Bio Dad never knew that Marion was pregnant, and is excited to build a relationship with Kirby. Would’ve made it all just a bit too bflong and happily-ever-after, plus it would’ve dragged out the ending. Kirby Rose the most beautiful name! With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to whers.

Contains Spoilers I have been a long time fan of Emily Giffin’s books.

But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door. It was an easy read and others may respond better to the main characters than I did. I don’t like how the ending leaves you hanging!

It’s clear that Marian doesn’t know what to do when the baby she gave up for adoption shows up at her door 18 years later. Finally, the story took off and I enjoyed a few hundred pages that followed. In contrast to Giffin’s books, check out early novels of Sarah Bird The Boyfriend School for a personality-filled dunk in 80s Austin with lots of well-loved name checks.


Whwre changing perspective kept making me flip back to see who was talking, igffin got old on the iPad. I will be incredibly dissappointed if there is a sequel about a romance between Marion and Condrad.

In fact, it occurs to me that staring at her face, waiting for her to wwhere, feels a little bit like falling in love.

Marian has worked hard for her successful, composed life and seems to have it all. Then there’s the right man!

View all 3 comments. Meily about all that I enjoyed from that part of the book. But I wish she would tune her writing up, and she has some bad habits and a few writerly tics she indulges here. Giffin’s views on adoption are entirely cliche’ and have no real bearing on true adoptions.

See 2 questions about Where We Belong…. It doesn’t always turn out perfectly, gifffin I think it would have felt a bit too fairy tale-ish if it had.

Giffin pulls it off very nicely. Probably half my problem is I empathise and put myself in emiky situation. That being said, Where I Belong was a rather contrived, simplisitic story.

I have read every one that she has written, and always eagerly await her newest one, as I did with “Where We Belong. Laying awake in bed at 1: I had already planned to buy this book when it came out, and getting an advance copy turned out to be a great gift, because I loved this book even more than I thought I would.


Her first love who is the dad.

Are you not eblong this book because bellong author set her assistant and her fans on the negative reviewers? It seemed too easy that Kirby and Marian would strike up an easy friendship, that their relationship would develop so quickly and simply – and that Kirby wouldn’t have more anger toward Marian once she sees the lavish life Marian lives as a network television producer in New York City.

Our main character, Kirby, has an adopt I had read Something Borrowed a few years ago, and remembered liking it. The rest of the book was fleshed out nicely, I just felt that another p I have been a fan of Giffin’s writing because her prose evokes emotions and connection with the characters. That is what makes Giffin’s stories so interesting. I started reading this book, and wasn’t enjoying the storyline as much as I had hoped I would.

And I was right, Emily has a way to get you into a story, and keep you there, whether you like it or not.
