About Meant to Be

A restless golden boy and a girl with a troubled past navigate a love story that may be doomed before it even begins, in this “glorious, satisfying” (Adriana Trigiani) new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of All We Ever Wanted and The Lies That Bind.

About Emily Giffin

Emily Giffin, dubbed a “modern day Jane Austen” (Vanity Fair) and a “dependably down-to-earth storyteller” (New York Times), has penned ten New York Times bestselling novels with Meant to Be being her eleventh, all filled with endearingly flawed characters and emotional complexity. They have been translated into twenty-nine languages, with eleven million copies in print worldwide and the first, Something Borrowed, became a major motion picture starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and John Krasinski.
