First Comes Love
Fifteen years after the unexpected death of their brother Daniel, Josie and Meredith’s lives are not what they envisioned. Josie parties too much and desperately wants a child, but isn’t in a committed relationship, while Meredith is unhappily married to Daniel’s best friend. Will the sisters continue to live in discontent or will they repair their lives and find happiness?
Often times, a tragedy drastically changes the life courses of loved ones, as is brilliantly shown in First Comes Love. Giffin’s characters are very human-sometimes mean-spirited and petty, but ultimately I found myself rooting for them. Despite the heavy theme, this novel is funny and touching and is a great summer read!
