You Were Meant for Me is a book about relationships. It seems that every relationship in this book is accidental, which makes it seem quite real. Nothing is forced in the way the characters meet and in the way their relationships evolve.
Miranda is the focus of the novel. She is in her mid-thirties, still getting over a bad break-up, and content with her life. Then she finds a baby abandoned in the subway and her whole life changes.
Miranda can’t get that baby out of her mind and ends up taking the baby home as her foster mother.
Miranda ends up learning a lot about herself with the new journey she accepts and as she learns about the baby she wants to adopt.
McDonough’s writing flows smoothly and makes this book an easy but enjoyable read. She really brings you along with the characters as they learn and grow as people. I would highly recommend this as a fantastic beach read this summer!
