ABOUT THE BOOK Blame high-definition televisions or airbrushing, but for some reason, people expect perfection in every aspect of their lives, especially their relationships. Having the right kids, the right home, and getting into all the right schools have become a preoccupation for wives and husbands. In Heart of the Matter, everyone perceives the central relationship to be perfect, so much so that the people in that relationship are afraid to have people see them as having flaws. The result is that the husband and wife drive each other away. What this book can teach you is that all relationships have underlying secrets and the pressure to be perfect is what can keep you from being close. Even in the most successful of relationships, there are likely to be some underlying secrets. Also, just because you are in a committed relationship doesnt mean your significant other will stop making mistakes. Instead, people learn to accept their situations and limitations, but that doesnt mean theyre settling. A lot of people find themselves in a relationship situation they never imagined would happen Heart of the Matter definitely illustrates that with its dramatic turn of events that bring together people who would have never intersected otherwise. This book can teach you that if you have enough love and give up the idea that everything in your relationship is going to work out perfectly, you may find something else. And it may be something better.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Emily Giffin never took a single writing workshop or tried to get her masters in writing. Unless you count her time as editor-in-chief of her high school newspaper, she didnt really pursue writing as a profession. Though she was born in Baltimore, Maryland, she went to high school in a Chicago suburb. Giffin obtained her undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University, then graduated with her law degree from the University of Virginia. After years as a litigator in New York City, she says she decided she actually hated her job and what she really wanted to do was write. Moving to London to write full-time probably wouldnt work for most people, but Giffin has numerous New York Times bestselling books to show it worked out pretty well for her. After her first young adult novel was rejected, she tried again with a novel that would become Something Borrowed. The rest is successful writer history. Buy a copy to keep reading!
