Inhaltsangabe zu „SOMETHING BORROWED“ von Emily Giffin

The wonderful debut novel by #1 New York Times and international bestselling author Emily Giffin. For every woman who has ever had a complicated love-hate friendship and has dreamt of love, sex and of doing the right thing – Something Borrowed will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend! Now adapted for the big screen in a major film starring Kate Hudson ("Almost Famous", “How to Lose a Guy in 10 days”, “You, Me and Dupree”, “Bride Wars”), Gennifer Goodwin ("Big Love". “Mona Lisa Smile”, “He’s Just Not That Into You”), and John Krasinski ("The Office", “License to Wed”). Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy’s fiancé, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren’t always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself. “I absolutely LOVED it and read it in two sittings because I could not put it down .... Something Borrowed is also very well written—nice spare prose, which kept me pressing forward, agog to know what happened. This is a book that takes a clear-eyed look at the rivalry that exists in even the best friendships. Congratulations to Emily Giffin on having written such a compelling, engrossing, and uplifting book.” - Marian Keyes “Here’s a heroine you’ll root for and a book you won’t want to put down. I loved it! – Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada “Sex and the City fans will love this sassy debut novel about two best friends whose rather ulikely lifelong frienship is about to be sorely tested” – Woman’s Own “ Emily Giffin brings a fresh new voice to women’s fiction. Something Borrowed is a deftly written and convincing tale of a friendship gone comically—and at times poignantly—awry.” -Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries “Something Borrowed is a luxurious page-turner of a debut novel that marks the arrival of a tremendously bright, clever new voice in women’s fiction. In quick-moving, captivating prose punctuated with dead-on dialogue, Giffin deftly captures complexity and humor of love, betrayal, career, and friendship for a city girl at the edge of thirty; you’ll forget this is just a novel, and won’t want to put it down.” —Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, author of The Dirty Girls’ Social Club “Page-turning, heartbreakingly honest... Instead of falling back on easy chick-lit clichés, Giffin deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic situation.” —Entertainment Weekly, Grade A “What kind of self-described ‘nice girl’ would sleep with her best friend’s fiancé? One who’s seriously flawed, like this delightful debut novel’s hero¬ine, but also surprisingly winning and real.” —Glamour
