By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept: A Novel of Forgiveness

Paulo Coelho
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.

This book doesn't have the impact of The Alchemist or the suspense of Veronika Decides to Die, but it is still a good story about following your dream.

لم ترق لي هذه الرواية...صفحة تلو الاخرى حتى ايقنت بأن وقتي ضاع بلا فائدة ترجى
وقت المرء أثمن من أن يهدره فيما لا ينفع ولا متعة في هذه الرواية ولا شيء فيها مشوق.
