Love Walked In by Marisa de Los Santos is the story of Clare and Cornelia. Clare is an eleven year old girl watching her single mother slowly falling apart. Her father is a distant and little-known presence so she copes by learning to take care of herself and by hiding what is happening in her home. Cornelia is a cafe manager who meets her dream man in the form of a Cary Grant look-alike, only to find out that good looks and charm aren’t all they are cracked up to be.
This is a love story, but not in the traditional sense. There is romance, but more importantly there is friendship and family. It is the story of how life is rarely what we hope or expect it to be, but often turns out to be even better.
