When Claire--divorced, with children, a job, and in the market for love--meets Tim--divorced and struggling to raise his own daughter--it seems that a perfect love has finally arrived. But joining two families proves difficult. For anyone who has loved, lost, and will try again, this novel perfectly captures love as one approaches middle age in contemporary America.

"Where Love Goes is a novel that has the intimacy and directness of a voice whispering in your ear. It is about love, loss, memory, music, men, women, children — and how they drag us kicking and screaming into adulthood. A lovely book. And true."
— Erica Jong
"The subject here is love, between parents and kids, husbands and wives, and lovers — how we beat each other up with it, misplace and misunderstand it, and fall on our swords over it, then find the touchingly human bravery to get up the next day and start pursuing it again. Joyce Maynard has written a pitch-perfect, wise, heartbreaking, and ultimately triumphant book."
— Charles Gaines
"Funny, tender, and true...Maynard's best yet."

Maynard does a decent job of holding this story together for a while... Then bizarre, unnecessary things begin to happen and the novel becomes mired in melodrama. An ok read for a beach day or sick day, but the story won't stay with you.
