If You Could See Me Now was the third book written by Cecilia Ahern. She is already developing her fantasy-magical style. I found the writing beguiling and wanted the story to linger on, mainly because of the revelations being made along the way about each of the characters.
The plot centres mainly round the person of Elizabeth Egan, who copes with life by being tightly in control, so that she will not be disappointed or let down. She has become the reluctant carer for her sister’s child, who at the time of the action is 6yrs old. He is a bright loner of a child, who develops an imaginary friend…….. But just how imaginary is Ivan?
The unfolding tale had me uncomfortable, reluctantly admiring and finally, totally captivated. I don’t want to tell you too much, except to say that it is a worthwhile read and that I took a little while to come back to earth, once it was finished.
