    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.

    • Amazing book

      A friend first lent me this book, and I enjoyed it so much I had to have my own copy. It sucks you in from the first page, with its description of feeling. You feel part of the journey, while not quite knowing what will happen next. Without revealing details, I have to say that I was surprised by the ending. It's an easy read, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
