"A woman is abandoned by her husband. Shaken by the betrayal, she and her two children are taken to the most unexpected of places to heal: the country farm of her remote and diffident father-in-law. What unfolds between them is a relationship that changes both their lives - one that transforms their notion of family and encourages a better understanding of each other and the choices of the heart." "With this deceptively simple novel Anna Gavalda delivers a romance about the unpredictability of love, the toll it takes on its victims - both innocent and guilty - and the unanticipated resilience of its survivors."--BOOK JACKET

Love stories. Short Stories. Following the publication of Anna Gavalda's international bestseller, HUNTING AND GATHERING, this book introduces us to Anna Gavalda's witty and dazzling collection of stories, I WISH SOMEONE WERE WAITING FOR ME OMEWHERE, together with her heartbreaking and poignant novella, SOMEONE I LOVED I WISH SOMEONE WERE WAITING FOR ME SOMEWHERE explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother's plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Gavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing, and loneliness. SOMEONE I LOVED is a hauntingly intimate look at the intolerably painful, yet sometimes valuable consequenc- es that adultery can have on a marriage and the individuals involved. A simple tale, yet long in substance, "Someone I Loved" ends like most great love affairs, forever leaving you wanting just one more moment
