Opening with a description of the death of her mother, a mourning woman ruminates on how to survive her loss. Mozhan Marno narrates this story of loss in a soft voice that murmurs like a brook, a gentle, soothing background to the noise of life. In an attempt to heal, Blanca leaves Barcelona with her two sons, both ex-husbands, two girlfriends, her married lover, and others and heads to Cadaqués, on the coast, to a house inherited from her mother. Marno smoothly and steadily delivers Blanca's struggle to come to grips with depression. The long descriptions of people and emotions are wrapped in Marno's warm tones, which drive this story about growing older and dealing with death and disease.
