From Paulo Coelho, author of the bestselling The Alchemist, comes a poignant, richly poetic story that reflects the depth of love and life.

Rarely does adolescent love reach its full potential, but what happens when two young lovers reunite after eleven years? Time has transformed Pilar into a strong and independent woman, while her devoted childhood friend has grown into a handsome and charismatic spiritual leader. She has learned well how to bury her feelings . . . and he has turned to religion as a refuge from his raging inner conflicts.

Now they are together once again, embarking on a journey fraught with difficulties, as long-buried demons of blame and resentment resurface after more than a decade. But in a small village in the French Pyrenees, by the waters of the River Piedra, a most special relationship will be reexamined in the dazzling light of some of life’s biggest questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful My heart was pulled into this book with an ache and a sweetness. Sometimes you find a book and sometimes, the book finds you. I love Coelho, his magical, layered, mystic way of storytelling and life secrets. This book was exactly what I needed when weeding through my own journey of love, healing, and hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Unique & Spiritual Love Story! Unlike the usual love story. This novel takes you on a journey of self-discovery, love and spirituality. Short read, but jam packed with wisdom and truth! Love Mr. Coelho, never fails to provide me with long lasting wisdom :)
