Reseña del editor:

Two sisters, whose relationship was strained by the tragic death of their older brother over a decade ago, find that they need each other more than they realized. They must ask themselves: if love and marriage and children don't all come together at once, which do you fight for?

Nota de la solapa:

In this dazzling new novel, Emily Giffin, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Something Borrowed, Where We Belong, "and "The One & Only" introduces a pair of sisters who find themselves at a crossroads.
Growing up, Josie and Meredith Garland shared a loving, if sometimes contentious relationship. Josie was impulsive, spirited, and outgoing; Meredith hardworking, thoughtful, and reserved. When tragedy strikes their family, their different responses to the event splinter their delicate bond.
Fifteen years later, Josie and Meredith are in their late thirties, following very different paths. Josie, a first grade teacher, is single and "this close" to swearing off dating for good. What she wants more than the right guy, however, is to become a mother a feeling that is heightened when her ex-boyfriend s daughter ends up in her class. Determined to have the future she s always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands.
On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she s married to a wonderful man, and together they re raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Yet lately, Meredith feels dissatisfied and restless, secretly wondering if she chose the life that was expected of her rather than the one she truly desired.
As the anniversary of their tragedy looms and painful secrets from the past begin to surface, Josie and Meredith must not only confront the issues that divide them, but also come to terms with their own choices. In their journey toward understanding and forgiveness, both sisters discover they need each other more than they knew . . . and that in the recipe for true happiness, love always comes first.
Emotionally honest and utterly enthralling, "First Comes Love" is a story about family, friendship, and the courage to follow your own heart wherever that may lead.
