Pacifique

A book by Pacifique by Sarah L. Taggart.

Sarah L. Taggart

When Tia meets Pacifique, it's a once-in-a-lifetime love.

They spend five wild days and nights together, and then Tia wakes up in an ambulance with a collarbone broken in a bike accident — and no trace of Pacifique. Unable to convince anyone that Pacifique exists, Tia winds up in a psychiatric ward, forced to face the possibility that this perfect lover may be a figment of her imagination.

While there, Tia meets Andrew, a contemplative man with schizophrenia, who falls in love with Tia. He, too, tells her to forget Pacifique. Who to believe? The medical establishment and her fellow patients? Or her frail human memory? And if Pacifique truly is a figment, is life in the "real world" with Andrew enough? (From Coach House Books)
