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?
If You Could See Me Now is a love story with heart -- and just a touch of magic.

Living in an Irish village and raising her young nephew, Luke, isn't what interior designer Elizabeth Egan imagined, but she accepts her fate--until she meets Luke's not so imaginary friend, Ivan, and everything changes! Resonant with the charm and melancholy of Ireland, Susan Lynch's characterization is the strongest aspect of her reading, and her interpretation of rigid, emotionally repressed Elizabeth almost makes her likable. Equally impressive is Rupert Degas's performance as Ivan. The joy and warmth infusing his voice are contagious, and his comic timing is impeccable--particularly in the scenes involving Ivan's otherworldly cohorts. Also notable is the moody Celtic-flavored score, which helpfully denotes time passing or a flashback. C.E.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
