Heart of the matter
Emily Giffin
Adult Fiction GIFFIN

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: "Giffin excels at creating complex characters and stories that ask us to explore what we really want from our lives." - Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tessa Russo is the mother of two young children and the wife of a renowned pediatric surgeon. Despite her own mother's warnings, Tessa has recently given up her career to focus on her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness.&nbspFrom the outside, she seems destined to live a charmed life. Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie - a boy who has never known his father. After too many disappointments, she has given up on romance - and even to some degree, friendships - believing that it is always safer not to expect too much. Although both women live in the same Boston suburb, the two have relatively little in common aside from a fierce love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one could have imagined. In alternating, pitch-perfect points of view, Emily Giffin creates a moving, luminous story of good people caught in untenable circumstances.&nbspEach being tested in ways they never thought possible. Each questioning everything they once believed. And each ultimately discovering what truly matters most.
