From the Publisher:
Everyone has secrets. Some we keep to protect ourselves, others we keep to protect those we love.
Cornelia Brown surprised herself when she was gripped by the sudden, inescapable desire to move with her husband to the suburbs. Her mettle is quickly tested by her impeccably dressed, overly judgmental neighbor Piper Truittthe embodiment of everything Cornelia feared she'd find in suburbia. With Lake, another recent arrival, Cornelia shares a love of literature and old moviesas she forms an instant bond with this warm yet elusive woman and her perceptive, brilliant young son, Dev. But there are shocking secrets and unexpected surprises lurking beneath the peaceful veneer of suburban lifeand nothing is quite what it seems.
Poet and literature professor Marisa de los Santos follows up her bestselling debut novel LOVE WALKED IN with the equally charming BELONG TO ME. Cornelia Brown is an urbane intellectual, and when she moves with her husband to the suburbs she finds herself ill-suited to a world of garden parties and immaculate leisure, and surprised by the snobbish standards set by her neighbor Piper Truitt. Fortunately, she finds refuge with an unconventional new friend, Elizabeth, and is drawn to Elizabeth's brilliant teenage son, Dev.
