Synopsis

What if love was right there in front of you – you just couldn’t see it?

Elizabeth Egan is too busy for friends. As a reluctant mother to her sister Saoirse’s young son Luke and with her own business to run, every precious moment is made to count.

But with Saoirse crashing in and out of their lives, Luke and Elizabeth are desperately in need of some magic.

Enter Ivan. Wild, spontaneous and always looking for adventure, Ivan changes Elizabeth in ways she could never have imagined.

As for Ivan, he thought he was there to help Luke, not Elizabeth – or himself...

I have read most of Cecelia's books and intend to eventually read them all! If You Could See Me Now is by far my most favorite, and I have purchased several copies for friends of mine. I am 78-years-old, so this tells you it appeals to all ages. Yes, a fairytale, but a wonderful one. Cecelia is definitely one of my favorite authors and I look forward to beine on her mailing list.

This book, If you could see me now is the first book of Ceceli's i've ever read and I fell in love with it. I love how she illustrates Ivan's first encounter of love & how he cope when he couldn't have the love of his life. I felt his pain and struggles. I wish there's really an Ivan that will somehow show us to hope, to believe and to dream. I love how imaginative Cecelia is in this book. Cheers!

This is possibly the most AMAZING book I have ever had the pleasure to read. I have told all my friends and family to read it. I really hope out there somewhere in this crazy world we live in there is Ivan and his friends making people smile. The imagination behind this book is magical. A total must read!!
