Love Walked In

by de los Santos, Marisa

Condition: Good

New York: Plume, 2006-11-28. Trade Paperback. Good. 307 pages; light edge wear; 'My life, my real life, started when a man walked into it, a handsome stranger in a perfectly cut suit, and, yes, I know how that sounds'. For 31-year-old Cornelia Brown, life is a series of movie moments, and 'Jimmy Stewart is always and indisputably the best man in the world, unless Cary Grant should happen to show up'. So, imagine Cornelia's delight when her very own Cary Grant walks through the door of the hip Philadelphia cafe in which she works. But, when Cornelia meets 11-year-old Clare, their lives are forever changed in unexpected ways...Funny, touching and smart, "Love Walked In" is a winning tribute to classic film and true romance.

When Martin Grace enters the hip Philadelphia coffee shop Cornelia Brown manages, her life changes forever. But little does she know that her newfound love is only the harbinger of greater changes to come. Meanwhile, across town, Clare Hobbs—eleven years old and abandoned by her erratic mother—goes looking for her lost father. She crosses paths with Cornelia while meeting with him at the café, and the two women form an improbable friendship that carries them through the unpredictable currents of love and life. Love Walked In , the first novel by award-winning poet Marisa de los Santos, is bursting with keen insight and beautifully rendered prose. Invoking classic movies to illuminate the mystery and wonder of love in all its permutations, Love Walked In is an uplifting debut that marks the entrance of an enchanting literary voice.
