When Ally realizes that the mysterious man sitting in front of her on the beach caf where she now spends her afternoons after work, is reading her personal favorite book, she has no idea what life and fortune have reserved for her. For them. On that March afternoon, Ally Julliard, an uncommon free spirited financial marketeer and Henry Bell, a profound creative film producer are united in a devoted experience of unforeseen truth and magnificent splendor that will live on forever. Several months later, on a night out with friends from old times, after Ally returns from the six month work mission in New York City that led to their abrupt breakup, the flame of love and desire between Ally and Henry relights. Ally longs to be with Henry one more time, but Henry's sorrow speaks louder than his genuine feelings. Henry finds himself unable to forgive Ally for choosing her career over their relationship. But then again, as he looks at her, beautiful and sexy as she has always been, he knows that he loves her now more than the first time they met. Henry is terrified of getting hurt again, but how can he hide from Ally what he really feels? Or from himself? Close to You is the first part of Ally Julliard's journal, where she shares the beautiful yet dramatic love story that swept her heart and soul away for always. Close to You is the echo of the yearnings of men and women in all still places and all wandering times. With this story, we understand what it is to love and be loved in such an intense and powerful way, that life can never and will never be the same again.
