By best-selling author and international sensation Paulo Coelho, a poetic and transcendent story that reflects the mysteries of love and life.
Rarely does adolescent love reach its full potential. What happens when, after eleven years, two lovers come together again? Pilar has become an independent and strong young woman. Her childhood friend has become a handsome spiritual leader. She has learned to bury her feelings, while he has turned to religion as a refuge from his inner conflicts.
Together they embark upon a journey that is initially fraught with difficulties, as blame and resentment resurface after years of being hidden. But by the River Piedra, in a small village in the French Pyrenees, they discuss many of life's big questions and re-evaluate their own special relationship.
