I’ve got one more absolutely fantastic giveaway to share with you today and that is Falling Together by Marisa De Los Santos which releases October 4, 2011! I can’t wait to read this – I read Love Walked In a few years ago and I have Belong to Me to read as well which I intend to do before reading this one. Loved Walked In was one of my favorite novels and Marisa de los Santos has a wonderful way of telling a story. So, let’s learn a bit about the book and the author and be sure to check out the giveaway at the end of the post.
About Falling Together by Marisa de los Santos (from Fantastic Fiction)
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 Marisa de los Santos (from Amazon.com)
I became a writer because I love the sound and texture of words (current favorite consonant sounds: Ls and hard Cs) and love to hear what happens when they bump up against each other. I was a poet for a long time (my first book is a collection of poetry called FROM THE BONES OUT), and then, one day, unexpectedly, I found that I had a voice inside my head. As you might imagine, this was a bit alarming. However, in time, I discovered that the voice belonged to a character named Cornelia Brown, so I wrote a novel called LOVE WALKED IN about her and an eleven-year old girl named Clare. After that, I became addicted to writing novels. I wrote a second one called BELONG TO ME, and my third, FALLING TOGETHER, comes out on October 4th, 2011. I’m now working on a fourth, tentatively titled THE PRECIOUS ONE. I live with my husband, children’s book author David Teague, and our two kids, Charles and Annabel, in lovely Wilmington, Delaware, home of Vice President Biden and tax-free shopping.
