About the author

Biography of Giffin, Emily

Emily Giffin was born March 20, 1972 in Baltimore, Maryland. She earned her undergraduate degree at Wake Forest University. She then attended law school at the University of Virginia. After graduating in 1997, she moved to Manhattan and worked in the litigation department of Winston & Strawn. In 2001, she moved to London and began writing full time. In 2002 she signed a two-book deal with St. Martin's Press. While doing revisions on Something Borrowed, she found the inspiration for a sequel, Something Blue.

Something Borrowed was released spring 2004. It received positive reviews and made the extended New York Times bestsellers list. Something Blue followed in 2005, and in 2006, her third, Baby Proof, made its debut. Giffin spent 2007 finishing her fourth novel. The next three novels were international bestsellers, and appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List, among many others. Something Borrowed and Something Blue have been optioned for film. In 2012 and 2013 her title Where We Belong also made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-03-15)

Tessa Russo is a Boston stay-at-home mother of two young children. Her husband, Nick, is a busy pediatric surgeon. Valerie Anderson is a single mom of six-year-old Charlie. Their lives intersect when Charlie is badly burned at a sleepover party, and Nick becomes his doctor. Much to Nick's chagrin, Tessa is on the fast track to joining the inner circle of a clique of uptight and wealthy suburban moms; meanwhile, he increasingly devotes himself to Charlie and Valerie. His relationship with Valerie builds gradually as they fool themselves into believing that they are just friends. That is, until Tessa goes out of town.

Verdict: Best-selling author Giffin's fifth novel (after Love the One You're With) is fast paced and well written; readers will be eager to find out how the relationships evolve and how the characters deal with the messy reality of adultery. Sure to be in demand by fans of women's fiction.
