This book tells the story of two very different people, one inside the other's skin, who are forced to confront the essential truths of their lives. Elias is a brilliant young physicist who is in a coma after a car accident. Jean, his wife, is struggling to cope with his illness and the demands of their busy lives. When Elias begins to communicate with people outside his body, Jean is forced to confront the hidden parts of her own life. As she listens to Elias, she begins to understand the choices she has made and the secrets she has kept. She also comes to see the life she has been living through Elias's eyes. In the end, Jean is forced to confront the possibility that she may have been too afraid to take risks, and Elias reveals the secret behind his coma.; 8vo; 644 pages; Price? ? ?
