Now in paperback: In this charming novel, internationally bestselling author Cecelia Ahern shows that sometimes not seeing is believing!
Readers and critics alike adore Cecelia Ahern for her lighthearted yet insightful stories about modern women and their often unusual situations. In If You Could See Me Now, she takes that theme a step further, offering us a heroine who is entirely believable, and the new man in her life who is, well, slightly less so.
Elizabeth Egan?s life runs on order: Both her home and her emotions are arranged just so, with little room for spontaneity. It?s how she counteracts the chaos of her family — an alcoholic mother who left when she was young, an emotionally distant father, and a free-spirited sister, who seems to be following in their mother?s footsteps, leaving her own six-yearold son, Luke, in Elizabeth?s care. When Ivan, Luke?s mysterious new grown-up friend, enters the picture, Elizabeth doesn?t know quite what to make of him. With his penchant for adventure and colorful take on things large and small, Ivan opens Elizabeth?s eyes to a whole new way of living. But is it for real? Is Ivan for real?
