Belong to Me – Marisa de los Santos

February 13, 2009

I read Love Walked In a while back and loved, loved it. So, when this book, a sequel, was released I knew I had to pick it up and read it. I was even lucky enough to find a copy in a thrift store for a couple of bucks.

Belong to me starts shortly after Love Walked In ends, with the story of Cornelia and Teo, who haved moved out to the suburbs from the City. The suburbs are a little more than Cornelia bargained for, as she encounters a cast of characters, mostly snobby women she feels very little in common with. As the story unfolds, secrets start to be revealed. Some of them quite shocking for Cornelia as she has to learn to adjust and adapt to the new information.

Santos is a wonderful writer. Her writing style is very poetic and beautiful and easy to read. I found myself liking this book better as the story unfolded more and more. But, overall, it wasn’t nearly as good as Love Walked In. If you’re a fan of Santos, this book is a must read.
