Borrow Borrow Borrow
One of the best-loved novels of 2015 is now available in paperback!

"A tale of love against the odds." —People
Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are just eight-years-old when they meet one night in an ER waiting room. Born with a congenial heart defect, Rachel is a veteran of hospitals, and she's intrigued by the boy who shows up alone with a broken arm. He tells her his name. She tells him a story. After Andy's taken back to a doctor and Rachel's sent back to her bed, they think they'll never see each other again.

Yet, over the next three decades, Andy and Rachel will meet again and again—linked by chance, history, and the memory of the first time they met, a night that changed both of their lives.

A sweeping, warmhearted, and intimate tale, Who Do You Love is an extraordinary novel about the passage of time, the way people change and change each other, and how the measure of a life is who you love.

    Weiner (All Fall Down) tugs at the heartstrings with her latest tale of angst and love. Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are eight years old when they meet in a Miami hospital's emergency room. Rachel has a congenital heart deformity that has required multiple surgeries, so she's an old hand at hospitals and enjoys hanging out in the ER area for a little excitement. Andy and his mother are visiting Florida; he has a broken arm. Their backgrounds couldn't be more dissimiliar: Rachel is the pampered daughter of an affluent couple in Miami; Andy is the child of a struggling hairdresser in Philadelphia. But to distract Andy from his pain while his mother is located, Rachel gives him a stuffed animal and tells him her own version of "Hansel and Gretel." When they part ways in the ER, both assume it will be the last time they see each other. But following an unexpected reunion at a volunteer camp, Rachel and Andy's paths intertwine for the next three decades, as Andy follows his dream of winning an Olympic gold medal in running and Rachel becomes a social worker. While the two have a romantic relationship as young adults, circumstances pull them apart, and they remain on the fringes of each others' lives until another chance meeting changes them once again. The story is in alternating points of view—Rachel's in the first person, Andy's in the third person—and it meanders a bit, but Weiner's achingly real characters will keep readers engaged all the way through.

    Andy and Rachel fall in love and fall apart, over and over, in this emotional outing from Weiner (All Fall Down, 2014, etc.). Eight-year-old Rachel Blum and Andy Landis meet in a hospital ER-she's there because of a congenital heart deformity while he's suffering from a broken arm caused by lack of parental supervision, having fallen off a balcony while doing circus tricks on the railing. They tell each other about the challenges in their young lives-for Rachel, it's that her surgery makes everyone think she's fragile, and for Andy, it's being biracial, which makes him feel like he doesn't fit in with white or black kids. When they meet again as teenagers, they almost instantly fall in love. But their relationship isn't without its obstacles-while Rachel is a Jewish upper-middle-class girl, Andy lives in poverty with his single mother. Andy and Rachel break off and rekindle their romance multiple times as he sets his sights on becoming an Olympic runner and she finds her way in her own career in social work. Through marriages, deaths, scandals, and successes, they keep finding their ways back to each other. Does their connection mean they're meant to be together-or are their differences simply too big to overcome? It's hard not to get invested in Weiner's characters, particularly Andy, who struggles to deal with his father's absence, his biracial identity, and feelings of being left out of Rachel's privileged world. Although some side characters are painted with broad strokes, Andy and Rachel feel fully realized and easy to root for, even when they're behaving badly and making mistakes. There are plenty of twists and turns (both predictable and surprising) in their relationship, and it's satisfying to watch them wend their ways toward the novel's perfectly realized conclusion. This moving story of love that spans a lifetime is Weiner at her heartstring-tugging best.
