She’s back! Emily Giffin, the New York Times bestselling author behind Something Borrowed, is set to release her new book, First Comes Love, on June 28, 2016 — and Us Weekly has the exclusive first look at the cover!
First Comes Love centers around a pair of thirtysomething sisters named Meredith and Josie, who both face the question: If love, marriage, and children don’t arrive in the usual order, which comes first?
Meredith thought that she did everything right. She married the perfect man and raised a beautiful daughter. However, she can’t help but wonder if she got the “love” part wrong. Her sister, Josie, who is single and living with her best guy friend, desperately wants a family of her own but can’t find Mr. Perfect.
“Sister stories have always been among my favorite in fiction,” Giffin, 43, tells Us. “From the Quimby girls in Beezus and Ramona to the March sisters in Little Women, and Elinor and Marianne Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility, I am drawn to novels that explore this unique, complex, and sometimes turbulent relationship, perhaps because my own relationship with my sister and only sibling, Sarah, has been so critical throughout my life.”
Giffin’s first seven novels, including the New York Times bestseller Something Borrowed, have been translated into 31 languages with 11 million copies in print worldwide. Something Borrowed was adapted to the big screen in 2011 and starred Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and John Krasinski.
“I was excited to write First Comes Love,” Giffin says. “The book is about the sister bond, for sure, but also about marriage and motherhood, friendship and family. And of course it’s about love — it’s always about love!”
