Being a good mother is a constant loss-fighting struggle at all hours of the day.

Not everything can be memorized with the eyes: we memorize with our hands and fingers. Bumps and depressions of the skulls. Dry skin.
No behavior is meaningless. We do not flirt together. There is no need to do this. We do not talk about past relationships and other people.
We do not try to arouse each other’s jealousy. We do not choose funny names for each other. We do not even mention the word love.
As the author’s first work, this book captures complex and exciting events. Fans of The Lost Girl will enjoy reading this book just as much.
