Today's Featured Book and Contest: FIRST COMES LOVE by Emily Giffin
Growing up, Josie and Meredith Garland shared a loving, if sometimes contentious, relationship. But when tragedy strikes their family, their different responses to the event splinter their delicate bond.

Fifteen years later, Josie and Meredith are in their late 30s, following very different paths. Josie, a first grade teacher, is single --- and this close to swearing off dating for good. What she wants more than the right guy, however, is to become a mother. Determined to have the future she’s always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands.

On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she’s married to a wonderful man, and together they’re raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Yet lately, Meredith feels dissatisfied and restless, secretly wondering if she chose the life that was expected of her rather than the one she truly desired.

As the anniversary of their tragedy looms and secrets from the past begin to surface, Josie and Meredith must not only confront the issues that divide them, but also come to terms with their own choices. Emotionally honest and utterly enthralling, FIRST COMES LOVE is a story about family, friendship, and the courage to follow your own heart --- wherever that may lead.
