Judith Hermann has written a novel about how love tries us – and about how vulnerable we really are in life.

Stella is married. She has a child, a job which fulfils her, and she lives with her family in a beautiful house on the outskirts of the city. Her life is simple and peaceful. Until one day, a man is standing at her door – a man Stella has never seen before, but who thinks all the same that his life is connected with hers. This day marks the beginning of a nightmare which builds slowly but inexorably.
In clear, uncompromising language and imagery of discomforting beauty, Judith Hermann weaves a tale of love’s mysterious beginnings and equally mysterious progression – and of the collapse of a life thought safe.
