** spoiler alert ** Wonderful! I don't know where to start...First, the relationship between Philip and Susan is AMAZING, they're so great together and it was so surprising when Philip married Mary! Lisa goes from being a mysterious and wild little girl who inspires pity, to a beautiful and accomplished young woman. Thomas is probably the cutest thing in the book, I love how he defends his adoptive sister when she first arrives and people make fun of her at school, ans I love the fraternal relationship between the two of us, he's the first one to have gotten through to Lisa and I find this idea of the little brother so touching. Although I found the beginning of the story pretty boring with the correspondence between Susan and Philip, as soon as Lisa makes her appearance and reveals her mother's death, it becomes addictive, and even more when it's revealed that Susan isn't actually dead, at Lisa's graduation, from this moment you can't get your eyes off the book. Too bad the really fascinating part is only less than half of the story, I found the first half really long, I actually thought about abandoning my reading it but then I decided to give it another chance and I'm glad I did...
And as every Marc Levy, it's beautifully written, full of wonderful images and reflections about life, love, etc...

Marc Levy
“On rêve d'un idéal, on le prie, on l'appelle, on le guette, et puis le jour où il se dessine, on découvre la peur de le vivre, celle de ne pas être à la hauteur de ses propres rêves, celle encore de les marier à une réalité dont on devient responsable.”
Marc Levy, Où es-tu ?
