Everyone has secrets. Some we keep to protect ourselves, others we keep to protect those we love. A devoted city dweller, Cornelia Brown surprised no one more than herself when she was gripped by the sudden, inescapable desire to leave urban life behind and head for an idyllic suburb. Though she knows she and her beloved husband, Teo, have made the right move, she approaches her new life with trepidation and struggles to forge friendships in her new home. Cornelia's mettle is quickly tested by judgmental neighbor Piper Truitt. Perfectly manicured, impeccably dressed, and possessing impossible standards, Piper is the embodiment of everything Cornelia feared she would find in suburbia. A saving grace soon appears in the form of Lake. Over a shared love of literature and old movies, Cornelia develops an instant bond with this warm yet elusive woman who has also recently arrived in town, ostensibly to send her perceptive and brilliant son, Dev, to a school for the gifted.… (mer)

I think this book will be percolating in my head for a long time. Belong To Me is beautifully written, and is one of the best approaches I've seen to a multi-perspective story. Especially in the early chapters, de los Santos gives such keenly insightful glimpses into how women relate to each other and see themselves, and how guardedly they dip their toes into trust and friendship that it's almost uncomfortable to read. In the end, though, her reflections on family and love and the sometimes serendipitous-seeming miracle of how people come to belong to us (and vice versa) were very moving. Also, it's just a great story! ( )

Adult fiction. Tangled stories of love and family. I see why de los Santos is such a popular author. ( )

Beautiful story and there were several passages that really caught my eye because the language was amazing. ( )

When I learned that Belong to Me was a continuation of Cornelia Brown’s story from Love Walked In I knew I had to read it, but I wondered if Marisa de los Santos could do it again: could make me feel so full, so satisfied, so in love with her beautiful writing and wonderful characters. Well, she did not disappoint. I would have been happy if Belong to Me was 1,000 pages or went on forever so I would never have to leave this marvelous world the author has created. Old favorite characters were back, new ones introduced. Once again I was surprised by the behavior of some characters and had my faith in others validated. The setting and atmosphere made me feel I was part of the story, and there was just enough uncertainty and surprise in the plot to keep my interest until the very last page. Another very satisfying read from Marisa de los Santos that I highly recommend. ( )

I never did start to like Piper, and I don't understand why she was one of the title characters. Her story doesn't really fit with the overall story. She's part of Cornelia's life, but doesn't deserve her own POV. She's a minor side character, that's it.

Despite that flaw, I loved this book. Cornelia is one of my favorite literary characters, ever, and I could bask in Marisa de los Santos' writing all day. ( )

My fall from suburban grace, or more accurately, my failure to achieve the merest molehill of suburban grace from which to fall, began with a dinner party and a perfectly innocent, modestly clever, and only faintly quirky remark about Armand Assante.
