From Paulo Coelho, author of the international bestseller 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.

I have always enjoyed Coelho's other books, but I found this one to be too blatantly religious for my tastes. It was well written, and expresses his views on the Christian Trinity poignantly. The love story is moving. The story moves along at a pace that is interesting. I just couldn't get past the strong religious tone.A young woman is contacted by her childhood sweetheart after many years. Upon meeting him again, the two must choose between their personal love for each and the divine love of their faith.read more

This is one in a number of books I am reading written by this author I am trying to read them all , and so far I have liked all of them I have read. This was a very good book different than anything I have read before, I would recommend you read some of this authors books , simple and to the point but with a good message, this actually left me wanting to read it again. You have to watch his books thought(lol) sometimes they seem to turn up right when you need to hear what they are saying. ;0)read more

Pants. I couldn't get through it. Condescending tone, and no real insight. Its likes he wants you to feel like you're being let in on a big insight. I don't know how he sells so many books. Catchy titles and women of a certain age I think.

I've been an avid reader of Mr. Coelho's books. I was first introduced to it by a close friend of mine and since then it's always on my list of books to read and enjoy. A book of lost and found love with a heavy religious aspect.Poetic with beautiful quotes and passages of love and the struggle that goes along with it. Well constructed spiritual book and easy enough book to read.
