Who Do You Love

Who Do You Love
by Jennifer Weiner

Genre: Women's Fiction

Synopsis:  An unforgettable story about true love, real life, and second changes.

Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are just eight years old when they meet one night in an ER waiting room.  Born with a congenital heart defect, Rachel is a veteran of hospitals, and she's intrigued by the boy who shows up alone with a broken arm.  He tells her his name.  She tells him a story.  After Andy's taken back to a doctor and Rachel's sent back to her bed, they think they'll never seen each other again.

Rachel grows up in an affluent Florida suburb, the popular and protected daughter of two doting parents. Andy grows up poor in Philadelphia with a single mom and a rare talent for running.

Yet, over the next three decades, Andy and Rachel will meet again and again-linked by change, history, and the memory of the first time they met, a night that changed the course of both of their lives.

A sweeping, warmhearted, and intimate tale, Who Do You Love is an extraordinary novel about the passage of time, the way people change and change each other, and how the measure of a life is who you love.
from the ebook summary

Review: This was a heartwarming tale of the development of love and of two individuals who are destined to be together.  At the beginning, I fell in love with the character of Andy, a boy and then a teenager who wanted a family and who just wanted to be like other kids and not be picked on. At some point in the story, I did become a little disenchanted with Andy because of choices he made. Rachel had some growing up to do but I think she eventually got to a good place.  I love reading about how their stories intertwined with each other through the years and how they moved in and out of each other's lives.  At times things were a bit cliche but still a great read!  Just a warning, there are a few steamy moments in the book.

Rating: 4 stars
