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.

🔮Hidden Depths
💡Learnt A Lot

I sat back and thought a lot while reading this book. That's what I love about Coelho, the author. The words are simple but they express the moments beautifully, it's each moment in its place. His style is honest, the characters are real and so as their anxieties. Good read

I was sure I could never fall in love with someone like him. I knew him too well, all his weaknesses and fears. I just couldn’t admire him as the others seemed to.

They have been joyful—because those who love conquer the world and have no fear of loss. True love is an act of total surrender.

. A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth.
If I have to fall, may it be from a high place.
