Jane has an imaginary friend called Michael. She also has a charming, fascinating, beautiful, gifted and spectacularly indifferent mother who is on her third husband (and may be angling for husband number four). Jane is unhappy at her mother’s distance but having Michael more than makes up for it. But it turns out that Michael isn’t so very imaginary, after all…

Jane’s need for her mother’s approval is palpable but she never comes off as needy, whiny or bratty. Because of the descriptions of Michael, magic shows in very subtle ways in the beginning of this story. It is only in latter chapters that the true miracle that is Michael takes flight. Not that he is a beatific saint—that would be truly boring to read. Instead he comes off as being a warm-hearted creature and we thoroughly understand why Jane comes to love him. An unusual writing choice for Mr. Patterson (who is known as a writer or mysteries and thrillers), his novel never falters in outlining this charming romance.
