Extract from 'The Dress'!
The young woman had an almost frightening beauty.
Her high cheek-bones seemed carved from some exquisite
alabaster and her painted red lips were shaped in a perfect,
symmetrical pout. However, it was her eyes – two dark pools
of immeasurable depth – that held him. She had a look of
knowing that transcended her sultry beauty. Although she
was a complete stranger, her fathomless gaze seemed to say
that she recognized him, recognized the vein of sadness
which, despite his great success, still ran through the core of
Frank did not seek out an introduction, he would not have
presumed, but Victor’s wife, Norah, must have noticed him
staring because before he knew what was happening, he was
being introduced after all.
‘This is Joy Rogerson,’ Norah said.
Frank took the pale, delicate hand in his and tried his best
to retain his composure. But as he looked into the girl’s deep,
sad eyes, Frank knew that, despite the great distance he had
travelled, despite the efforts he had made to chase away the
vulnerable boy and become the strong, capable man that he
was today, Frank Fitzpatrick had utterly lost himself.

Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are eight years old when they meet late one night in an ER waiting room. Born with a congenital heart defect, Rachel is a veteran of hospitals, and she's intrigued by the boy who shows up all alone with a broken arm. He tells her his name. She tells him a story. After Andy's taken back to the emergency room and Rachel's sent back to her bed, they think they'll never see each other again.
Rachel, the beloved, popular, and protected daughter of two doting parents, grows up wanting for nothing in a fancy Florida suburb. Andy grows up poor in Philadelphia with a single mom and a rare talent that will let him become one of the best runners of his generation.
Over the course of three decades, through high school and college, marriages and divorces, from the pinnacles of victory and the heartbreak of defeat, Andy and Rachel will find each other again and again, until they are finally given a chance to decide whether love can surmount difference and distance and if they've been running toward each other all along.
Tomorrow, on the 27th of August, Jennifer Weiner's newest novel will be released (in the UK; US fans have been able to get the book since the 11th of August) and it's a book many people, including me, are quite excited about! I've really enjoyed Jennifer Weiner's other works, such as 'In Her Shoes' and most recently 'All Fall Down.' I just love the description of 'Who Do You Love' and have a feeling this will be quite an amazing read. Without a doubt one of the August 2015 releases I am most excited about and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
