Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother, the powerful head of a Broadway theater company, has no time for her. She does have one friend-a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael-but only she can see him.

Years later, Jane is in her thirties and just as alone as ever. Then she meets Michael again-as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Michael knows the reason they've really been reunited.

Sundays at Tiffany's is a love story with an irresistible twist, a novel about the child inside all of us-and the boundary-crossing power of love.

Review:

"[A] tender yet magical story." Bokkreporter.com

Synopsis:

As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother Vivienne Margaux, the powerful head of a major New York theater company has no time for her. But she does have one friend--Michael--and no one can see him but her. But Michael can't stay with Jane forever, and on her eighth birthday, her imaginary friend must leave her.

When Jane is in her thirties, working for her mother's company, she is just as alone as she was as a child. Her boyfriend hardly knows she's there and is more interested in what Vivienne can do for his career. Her mother practically treats her as a slave in the office, despite the great success of Jane's first play, "Thank Heaven." Then she finds Michael--handsome, and just the same as she remembers him, only now he's not imaginary. For once in her life, Jane is happy--and has someone who loves her back. But not even Michael knows the reason behind why they've really been reunited.

Synopsis:

Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany's. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll soon forget him. Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone-a handsome, comforting, funny man. He's perfect. His name is Michael . . .

I have only read a few books in less than a week and this is the latest. I was surprised that a romantic novel was produced by James Patterson and found this out when Lifetime made it into a film. The notion of falling in love with your childhood imaginary friend seemed odd to me at first, because mine was a little girl, but since the heroine misses her dad as a very young girl, it's not at all surprising that her imaginary friend is a grown man. Patterson and co-author Gabrielle Charbonnet created a quick, enjoyable read out of, what on the surface seemed to be, a silly concept. Sundays at Tiffany's is written in a way that makes it seem possible and real all-the-while reminding you of a child's delicate self-esteem and the importance of a mother's love.

This was an excellent book, I read it in 2 days!! this is about a mother, Vivienne, that was pretty well wrapped up into her own life, leaving her young daughter, Jane-Sweetie to hold onto her imaginery friend, Michael. Michael was sent to Jane as an assignment to comfort her and only Jane could see him, but the assignment was to end when she reached the age of 9. She was told that she wouldn't remember Michael afterwards. When Jane grew up, she went to work at her mother's production company. Jane was in a relationship that was not working out very well and then one day she saw Michael for real. I won't give away what happens after that...it was a page turner! This was a dream come true love story...very well written!
