He drives back to his hotel—a place he'd visited many years before—opens a bottle of champagne, and with it, a door to the past. When K first saw Claudia 15 years before, he fell instantly and dangerously in love—so much so that he managed to forget he had a wife and a life already full. He became consumed by Claudia, who was little more than a child then, 24 years his junior, and their love proved to be destructive and ultimately tragic. Years later, he now finds his old love is on the verge of a very different future, but the past, inevitably, awaits them both—and he is determined to take her back there....

    I found this book difficult to get into...and I felt unprepared that Claudia was just 16!

    A brilliant book i couldn't put it down.Written very much in the style of Vladamir Nabokov's Lolita, its a modern upto date version but is very powerful and moving.The narrative style is clever just hinting at some things and revealing the whole sequence of events later, the characters are well thought out and portrayed and are described in such a way you can empathise with their feelings.Well worth reading.
