This book is a truly magnificent novel that gets you involved from the start until the last page.

The writer has such a great sensibility in molding his characters into almost real people that we praise for them to succeed. His representation of the background is of such a high level of details that we feel like we are participating and living inside the story's plot.

The story revolves around a character named Serge. He just lost his beloved wife and, on his own, is raising his son Max.

Despite being an architect, he is struggling with financial difficulties, which lands him in a job as a "house manager".

He soon realises that there is much more to this job than he initially thought. As an authentic man of firm moral beliefs, Serge begins earning the confidence of his bosses with his constant, devoted commitment.

In a business trip to Belize, he meets this old woman called Nana. That encounter shakes his life into a search for the meaning of life. The quest takes him to an unbelievable journey, and you will not be able to put the book down until you complete reading the last page.
