FINALLY a book with an ISBN number that "works" :oD

Quite sweet book about Lauren, who ends up in a coma - and in the closet of her apartment!

And a short abstract:
What do you do when you find a stranger in your closet; particularly when she's surprised that you can even see her -- and she can disappear and reappear at whim? What if she then tells you that her body is actually in a coma on the other side of town? Should you have her see a psychiatrist or should you consult one yourself? Or do you take a chance and believe in her, and allow yourself to be swept up in an extraordinary adventure?

This is the beginning of the dilemma that Arthur, a young San Francisco architect, is faced with when he discovers Lauren in his apartment.

Arthur is the only man who can share Lauren's secret, the only one who can see her, hear her, and talk to her when no one else so much as senses her presence. So when doctors prepare to end Lauren's physical care -- which would destroy the magical bond she and Arthur cherish -- he must find a way to save her. For, after all, it is only her love that can save him.

If Only It Were True is a heartwarming love story impossible to forget, an adventure that is by turns breathtaking and hilarious -- a captivating tale that evokes the essence of romance and our boundless capacity to believe.

Like 30 minutes ago I finished reading it...I must say the story is full of beauty and this is one of those books that you start reading and you cannot stop until you reach the end...
By the way, now I know where the story of the 86,400 dollars/seconds comes from...a while ago I received it via email ;)
Mai, now I am going to try to find someone who wants to read this book, so that way your book can go on travelling:)
Take care!

I'm finally reading it... I began it yesterday morning, while I was in a terrible mood, looking for a happy ending love story.
I think I'll finish it this evening, it's a very involving story and it put a smile on my face again.
I'm sorry for the delay... thanks again to Vanilla79 :-)

Finished! The book I just needed to read in these days! It warms up my heart and makes me think positive...
I'll probably release it somewhere in Milan next week or pass it to a friend... I'll let you know with a release note.
Thanks again for sharing. :-)
