There are moments that become melodies that wander forever in the movement of time, and places that stand still in the perfect endlessness of the ecosphere.
Moments and places that never remain alike from the moment two people’s hearts, two people’s souls - like the hearts and souls of Ally Julliard and Henry Bell - meet somewhere in the intersection of the living and the nonliving elements of such melodies, places and times.
When Ally realizes that the mysterious man sitting in front of her on the beach café 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 in the pages of this book you are about to read.
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?
Pacific Heights Series Book One - 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.
What you will read here, is a live testimony that changed the way I looked at love.
I met Ally, many, many years ago. I knew that one day I would love to tell her story with Henry. It was too much of a beautiful story to stay incarcerated in space or forgotten somewhere in the contingences of time. It is a story to be revealed and to be shared. A story that deserves to be immortalized, because of its depth, of its truthfulness and universality.
A story of tender feelings, grief and tragedy, that has showed me that true love is unearthly, that it persists beyond space and time and also that love, in its infinitude, beholds endless powers.
