Falling Together by Marisa de los Santos

Published by Harper Collins
Publication Date: November 2011 

About the Book:

What if saying hello to an old friend meant saying good-bye to life as you know it?

It’s been six years since Pen Calloway watched her best friends walk out of her life. And through the birth of her daughter, the death of her father, and the vicissitudes of single motherhood, she has never stopped missing them.

Pen, Cat, and Will met on their first day of college and formed what seemed like a magical and lifelong bond, only to see their friendship break apart amid the realities of adulthood. When, after years of silence, Cat—the bewitching, charismatic center of their group—e-mails Pen and Will with an urgent request to meet at their college reunion, they can’t refuse. But instead of a happy reconciliation, what awaits is a collision of past and present that sends Pen and Will, with Pen’s five-year-old daughter and Cat’s hostile husband in tow, on a journey across the world.

With her trademark wit, vivid prose, and gift for creating authentic, captivating characters, Marisa de los Santos returns with an emotionally resonant novel about our deepest human connections. As Pen and Will struggle to uncover the truth about Cat, they find more than they bargained for: startling truths about who they were before and who they are now. They must confront the reasons their friendship fell apart and discover how—and if—it can ever fall back together.

About the Author:

I'm the New York Times bestselling author of Love Walked In, Belong to Me, and Falling Together. I've also published a poetry collection called From the Bones Out.

I was born in Baltimore; grew up in Virginia; went to school for a very long time (UVA, Sarah Lawrence, and The University of Houston); studied poetry; published poetry; got married to David Teague (children's book author and all-around good egg); had two kids, Charles and Annabel (funny, smart, full of opinions); moved from Philly to Wilmington, Delaware; and began writing novels.

Bio from Harper Collins

Why am I waiting for this gem!?

From the authoress who created the books that would change my life, how can I not scream wildly and skip my way through life until this little tome plops itself snuggly in my bookshelf.  Please picture a grabby hand Kelly, distant manic grin on her face, and a dull monotone sream coming from my mouth!  I WANT THIS!!!!

What are you waiting for?
