Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a splendid, heartfelt novel that knows far too much about what is going wrong between men and women in these strange and dizzying times. Joyce Maynard's subject is love, but her gift is presenting it in all its many masks and stoney guises as men and women blunder toward each other with all the tenderness of their wounds open for all to see. Her book feels real enough to live in."

— Pat Conroy

"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."

— Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mating rituals among the middle-aged provide the focus for Maynard's latest. (Aug.)
Library Journal
It's romance, 1990s style, as Claire meets the love of her life-another divorced parent like herself. Unfortunately, the effort to make their two families one has mixed results.

    Rings true, to a point

    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.

    Depressing

    Maynard is a good writer, but if you are a depressed person, do not read this book. And even if you aren't depressed, you can be sure you will be after reading it.
