If You Could See Me Now is a gentle tale,a love story with a twist. Characters in this novel are not perfect but surely will capture  reader’s heart. Elizabeth Egan, is in her mid-thirties but single because she has got baggage, which is like a barrier to get her own life. Baggage is her own memory of mother who abandoned her leaving with her dad and younger sister Saoirse who is careless and alcoholic who left her 6 year old child Luke with Elizabeth. In between all these Elizabeth kept her life neat, busy and strict without any fun and enjoyment.

When six-year-old Luke begins to hum a tune that he learned from a new playmate named Ivan, Elizabeth learns of his imaginary friend whom she cant see. Only Luke and Saoirse can see him. But when Elizabeth meets a man named Ivan her life changes completely. Who is this invisible imaginary friend Ivan? How Elizabeth’s life will change? Ivan says he is from Ekam Eveileb where is that place?

I am sure imaginary friend is kind of  unbelievable but when you are in the middle of the story everything feels so real. A romantic, slow moving story . Again wonderful novel by Cecelia Ahern  if you are ready to accept the imaginary facts.
