by Cecelia Ahern

Harpercollins (uk) | August 24, 2006 | Mass Market Paperbound

If You Could See Me Now is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.

What if love was right there in front of you - you just couldn?t see it?

Elizabeth Egan is too busy for friends. As a reluctant mother to her sister Saoirse?s young son Luke and with her own business to run, every precious moment is made to count.

But with Saoirse crashing in and out of their lives, leaving both her sister and her son reeling, Luke and Elizabeth are desperately in need of some magic.

Enter Ivan. Wild, spontaneous and always looking for adventure, in no time at all Ivan has changed Elizabeth in ways she could never have imagined. But is Ivan too good to be true? Has Elizabeth opened her heart only to risk it being broken again?

As for Ivan, he thought he was there to help Luke not Elizabeth - or himself...

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 Elizabeth, an independent, fierce, rigid person, who is raising her carefree sister's six year old son, is on the pathway to a very lonely and loveless existence until she meets Ivan. Ivan turns out not to be who she thought he was, but that's what makes the story endearing. I was enthralled from the first page and couldn't put the book down. It was a great idea--that in the synopsis seems to be overplayed in modern literature--but it turned out to be something completely different. Not knowing a lot about Ireland it was great to also read a little bit about the Irish countryside. I did, however, find Elizabeth to be a bit indulgent. She can't seem to let go of this fairy tale image she has of her disappeared mother and she seems to whine quite a bit about being the self-prescribed keeper of both her father and her sister. There are 12 years separating Elizabeth and her sister, so Elizabeth essentially raises her. Then when her sister becomes pregnant at 16, Elizabeth takes on that responsibility as well. I personally thought that at 28, Elizabeth would have enough sense to know that the baby stood a better chance at being adopted then being raised by an unwilling aunt who resented his existence. I didn't particulary like how the book ended either because it left a lot of open questions. But for the most part I enjoyed the premise of the book and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok This was definitely a great idea for a story. My only complaint was it dragged on the same issue for way to long and was a little to sappy for me.
