Falling Together by Marisa de los Santos...Review & Flash Give Away!
It's been six years since Pen Calloway watched Cat and Will, her best friends from college, walk out of her life. Through the birth of her daughter, the death of her father, and the vicissitudes of single motherhood, she has never stopped missing them. When, after years of silence, Cat—the bewitching, charismatic center of their group—urgently requests that the three meet at their college reunion, Pen can't refuse. But instead of a happy reconciliation, what awaits is a collision of past and present that sends Pen and Will on a journey around the world, with Pen's five-year-old daughter and Cat's hostile husband in tow. And 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.
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.
This is the first of this author I have read and I have to mention the utter beauty in which she writes. She has a beautiful way of describing feelings, people and places that transports you into the book and also leaves you in awe of her lyrical talent. Bravo! In addition to the author's lovely writing style is the excellent story. In a nutshell, it is about friendship. It is about how far we will go (or won't) when it comes to a friend. I loved the friendship of Pen (Penelope...one of my very favorite names!), Will (another one of my favorite names!) and Cat. I could almost envision myself hanging out with them in college. They were fun, witty and charming and I was immediately drawn to them and their story. Falling Together is a must read this fall and the perfect book to lose yourself in during a cool Autumn night!
