There is a special delight here in getting to know Rachel and Andy from childhood to adulthood, and readers will find themselves laughing, crying, and hoping right along with the pair.
Weiner draws her characters with empathy and nuance. We take the year journey with them, and root for them along the way. Weiner's achingly real characters will keep readers engaged all the way through. It's a story about love gained and lost, and love eternal. Thank you, book gods. About two kids who meet in an unexpected way The book chronicles their journey through adulthood, as they determine whether they're soul mates despite wildly different backgrounds: Rachel, from a wealthy family and born with a congenital heart defect; and Andy, from a poor neighborhood in Philadelphia with dreams of running in the Olympics.
Who Do You Love is a love story about two people who fall in and out of touch over and over again but never stop thinking about each other. From her first novel, Weiner has a mastery of the telling detail. Her latest novel has a notably more serious tone from her past work. The main characters meet in the hospital when they're both eight years old and spend the rest of the novel moving in and out of each other's lives.
Reading one of her books is a completely engrossing experience, and you finish the final page feeling like you can face your own challenges with just a little more courage. The sure-to-be smash is a classic love story, told over the course of two decades, twisted up with modern cultural observations and maybe just a miniature ode to Save the Last Dance and When Harry Met Sally.

This was a line that got me a lot of sympathy from preschool through sixth grade, when I decided that a congenital heart condition was not what I wanted to be known for, and stopped talking about it at school.
Not a good thing if you want to, as the doctors say, survive. Photographs show a tiny, wrinkled raisin of an infant floating in her onesies, with none of the succulent, squeezable plumpness of normal babies. After I was diagnosed, she quit and devoted herself to my care. She would melt butter in my rice cereal, slather it on bread and crackers, feed me milk shakes where other kids just got milk. My parents brought me to my cardiologist, who sent me straight to the hospital, where the surgeons performed an emergency procedure that night to close off veins that had gotten too big, in a misguided effort to help my body deal with the faulty valve.
My mother had been terrified about the operation, of having my chest cracked open again, my poor battered heart exposed to the world. The only thing I remembered from the operation was Dr. Bob, the anesthesiologist, telling me to count backward from ten. For the first few days I was on a ventilator. My father would come after work, bringing a stuffed animal every time—a fuzzy yellow duck, a teddy bear, a pink bunny with silky, fur-lined ears.
He would tuck each new toy into the crook of my arm and deposit a kiss on my forehead. I spent days, and a few sleepless nights, trying to figure out the right words, something I could say that would comfort her and would also be true. My mom would kiss me, her freckled face pale and her curly brown hair, which was usually blown out straight and meticulously styled, pulled back in a careless ponytail. My dad would steer her out the door, one heavy hand between her shoulder blades, rubbing in little circles.
By the second week, I was still in bed, still on a feeding tube and a cannula, with drains sticking out of my chest. Alice was twelve and in sixth grade, but she was so small that we were basically the same size. Alice had had leukemia as a baby, and it had affected her growth.
For a while, the doctors thought she was cured. By the third week, the doctors said that I was healing beautifully, and that I was well enough to eat real food. My father would still stop by at night, bringing me things that I could do, not just hold—hundred-piece puzzles, a Walkman with new tapes—Wham!
It was September in Florida, sunny and warm, and we could see palm trees outside the windows and hear the drone of the mower as a man in a khaki uniform steered it across the lawn. A little girl with a bald head sat reading The Cat in the Hat with her mom. But I know. She pointed at the bag of clear fluids dripping into the IV attached to her arm. She had only a thin coating of pale blond fuzz where her hair had been, and there were pink scars crisscrossing her scalp. Sandra turned her head from side to side, like she was shaking water out of her ears.
Her hair was dark and shiny, her eyes were merry and brown, and she wore a sweet, flowery perfume. That, I was learning, was how grown-ups told the truth, not with words, but with what they did.
They spelled hospital wrong, I thought. I walked away fast, pulling my IV pole behind me. I was used to mothers crying—at least, I was used to my mom doing it—but it was unsettling to see a father like that. My father was big, broad-chested, and strong. By the fourth week, I was feeling almost completely better, but Alice was sleeping almost all of the Who Do You Love, and the novelty of hospital life was beginning to wear off. At least he still treated me like a normal little sister.
After dinner was more TV, and then story time. Finally, the echoing loudspeakers would deliver the news that visiting hours were over. My mother would stand up and stretch, throwing her arms over her head, twisting from side to side so that her back made popping noises. After dinner was a good time for her. Once, we saw Sandra emerge in a tight black dress and high heels. With all of the confusion—day nurses leaving, night nurses starting their shifts, different doctors arriving to visit their patients—it was the easiest Who Do You Love to slip into the elevator and stand close enough to one of the nurses that people would assume she was taking me to another floor, but also near another adult so that the nurses would think I was with a parent.
I heard voices and wondered if her parents were still in there, even though visiting hours were over. Her wrinkles got deeper. That was a detail Alice would have loved. The nurse pointed down the hall. I spotted another hair, right in the middle of her cheek. Back in my room, I decided to go downstairs and see if I could find something interesting to tell Alice about once her parents were gone. I selected a package of chocolate-covered Hostess Donettes from the latest gift basket my mom had sent for the nurses.
I wrapped my treats in napkins and bundled up the pink-and-purple afghan my nana had made me. Armed with provisions, the blanket, and my newest stuffed animal, a little teddy bear, I stuck my head out of my door, looked up and down the hallway to make sure that it was empty, then took the elevator down to the emergency room. I found a wheelchair by the entrance and waited until the receptionist was busy on the phone before wheeling myself into a corner of the waiting room.
But it was incredibly engaging and beautiful - I highly recommend it! View all 7 comments. Aug 06, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: emotionalsweet, heartbreakingwomens-fiction.
This book! I couldn't put it down. There were times I was happy, giddy and excited for Andy and Rachel. But there were other times, I was really upset and disappointed with the choices they made. Isn't that life though? Being riddled with the ups-and-downs that any relationship goes through, lent the story an honest quality.
What I adored most of all was that through everything, they kept finding their way back to one another.
My only wish - an epilogue. I wanted more Andy and Rachel. View all 12 comments. Holy wow!!! It's described as an "unforgettable story about true love, real life, and second chances Rachel grows up in an affluent Florida suburb, the popular and protected daughter of two doting parents. Andy grows up poor in Philadelphia with a single mom and a rare talent for running. 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 the course of both of their lives.
A sweeping, warmhearted, and intimate tale, this 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.

They are both in the hospital; Andy for a broken arm and Rachel for a heart defect. For her the hospital is home away from home, but eventually she could lead a healthy life.
They become friends and over a 30 year span they meet periodically and even moved i 4. They become friends and over a 30 year span they meet periodically and even moved in together at one point, but it didn't work out. Andy is an accomplished runner and Rachel keeps up with his public life, but never contacts him. Andy thinks of Rachel and how easy it was to be with her and talk to her.
It's whimsical when they think of each other as their lives have taken different paths. Isn't that the beauty of reading when you get immersed into the lives of the characters? Their lives had drifted so far apart, I couldn't wait to see how this story ended. Sep 08, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: adult-contentwomens-fiction-chicklitlistened-to-audiobookstand-alone-novelread This is a likable love story that takes the long way around so-to-speak.
The pace is slow which unfortunately affected how consistently engaged I felt and the characters weren't developed in a way that caused me to feel much investment in them. There were however interesting elements written into the their individual stories, such as family, medical, cultural, religious, economic, and racial dynamics. However, I encourage you to read a couple other reviews before you decide if it's for you.
There are some goodreads members who really loved it. View all 9 comments. Let me start by saying that I love Jennifer Weiner's writing. I really do - I love it. This novel, however, is not one of her best. Upper middle-class Rachel and poverty-stricken Andy meet by accident in a hospital waiting room when they are children.
Their lives keep intersecting, seemingly at random, as they grow to adulthood. The premise is that their love and, in such instances, they're bound to fall in love, right? This plot is trite and, frankly, it's been done before. Th Let me start by saying that I love Jennifer Weiner's writing. The sex scenes, too, Who Do You Love, and they're inevitable as well, aren't they?
Overall, this is a disappointing effort. If you'd like to start reading Jennifer Weiner, I recommend that you begin with any of her other books. This one is not exemplary of her work.

I hate to do it, but this one was just a little better than OK for me, 2. The story was one I feel has been done many times and lacked the humorous dialogue I'm used to in Weiner's writing.
Each chapter is one of their stories and while interesting in parts, more so Andy's story than Rachel's, it kind of plodded along. They fall in love, life gets in the way so they break up, meet up I Who Do You Love to do it, but this one was just a little better than OK for me, 2. They fall in love, life gets in the way so they break up, meet up again as adults, get back together The last chapter was so predictable I skimmed it to the last sentence.
I really wanted to like this one more, and it hasn't turned me off Weiner's writing altogether, but I really hope she gets back to funnier contemporary romance she does so well. View 2 comments.

Who Do You Love is the story of a fortunate girl with a heart problem, and a boy who turns to running when everything else seems outside of his control.
And between Rachel and Andy, there are plenty of times where it's appropriate to question, 'who DO you love? What it does do especially well is progress th Who Do You Love is the story of a fortunate girl with a heart problem, and a boy who turns to running when everything else seems outside of his control.
What it does do especially well is progress through the timeline. Since this story takes place over the span of about 30 years, it could have been easy to make the story feel drawn out or boring in parts. But through some great structuring and some truly unique pacing, I never once felt that there were lulls in terms of my own interest in the story. What did I think? For that reason, it was a pleasant surprise to be asked to read this one and I can't wait to share it with others.

Good in Bed is my all-time favourite Jennifer Weiner book. But oh, how the mighty have fallen. What genre is this book? The first half of it is a YA novel; the second half is mostly about sports. Oh and let's throw in a few gratuitous sex scenes to make it a bodice-ripper. Okay, they were not that bad.
In reading this, I didn't care much for the character of Rachel. In the beginning she is portrayed as a protagonist; she suffers fro I wish I could give this book 2. In the beginning she is portrayed as a protagonist; she suffers from a heart defect and then most of her childhood is spent in hospitals.
She and Andy meet again at camp and begin their love story. But then teen Rachel becomes a bully and the vicious side of her appears. Andy leaves her. Strike One.
They reconnect a few years later. Then when Andy is visiting her at college, Rachel cares more about her sorority than in Andy. He leaves and they break up again. Strike Two. Notice a pattern? Rachel moves in with Andy as he is training for the Olympics. But the nasty part of Rachel shows up again, and she ends things again with him.
Strike Three. And yet the book continues. The side stories of racial intolerance, poverty, growing up poor in single-family homes are all plot points that made the story even more confusing. I think that Andy's story - minus Rachel - would have been book-worthy in it's own right. I finished it to say I finished it - but after the brilliance of Good in Bed, I can honestly say this, now, will be my last Jennifer Weiner book. I'm just going to make up the ending that I want so there.
What you don't know is they keep in touch over many years. I mean from like 8 until their 30's they keep in touch and even briefly have a romance or just come together here and there and say how much they love each other and so forth and so on. I felt bad www. I felt bad for both of their stories growing up. Andy grows up poor with a not so nice mom and a dad who is presumed dead. Let me just say that all works out for the better later on. Rachel grows up with a heart defect, she says her heart is broken, for real : Her mom is always worried about her and doesn't let her do hardly anything.
I didn't like some of the parts of the book like when Andy comes to see Rachel at her sorority and she seems like this shallow person. They both live together at one point for some time, but it didn't seem to work out as one seems to like another person and then has a one night stand.
The other ends up getting married and having kids. This whole book is a crazy, but mostly wonderful ride throughout the years and talking about each persons life. They go back and forth between Rachel's story and Andy's story. They come back together at the end of the book when everything has fallen apart for both of them. Where will they go from there View 1 comment. Jul 23, Marla rated it really liked it. For different reasons people come in and out of your life.
Sometimes only once and sometimes several times. Rachel and Andy meet for the first time when they are 8-years-old when Rachel is in a Miami hospital for heart disease and Andy is there for a possible broken arm that he sustained while leaning over a balcony looking for his Mom. He was from Philadelphia visiting.
Rachel tells him a story while waiting for his Mom to show up. They don't see each other again until they are both year-old For different reasons people come in and out of your life. They don't see each other again until they are both year-olds and on a mission trip. They quickly reconnect and fall in love. Over the years they go separate ways yet are also together in college, after college and down the road. They make mistakes but they are always find a way back to each other.
I really enjoyed this book.
