OrangeReviewStarRachel Blum and Andy Landis met in the ER waiting room when they were eight. He was in with a broken arm, and she was in for treatment of her congenital heart defect. She grew up in an affluent area of Florida with happily married parents, while Andy grew up in a poor area of Philadelphia with a single mom. Their lives couldn't have been more different: she excelled at academics and received a graduate degree, while he, with a talent for running, worked hard pursuing his dream of becoming a medal-winning athlete. For 30 years, their lives intersect in mysterious ways, bringing them together and tearing them apart. Weiner (All Fall Down) delivers yet another flawless and gripping read with realistic and well-developed characters in her unforgettable love story. With her well-known humor and charm, she conveys the essence of first love, particularly the adage that true love never dies. Complete with a riveting, realistic recounting of 9/11 and a plot twist that will make your jaw drop, Weiner's brilliantly written novel will capture your heart.
VERDICT Readers will simultaneously want to savor and devour Weiner's latest. [See Prepub Alert, 6/21/15.]
