Don’t seek, and ye shall find: and so it is for Sperber, who meets the love of his life on a quay in Brittany. Love: absolutely new and unexpected, in all its tempestuousness and power, and yet millennia old. Sperber and Luchs are given two splendid days and nights:days and nights in which the pieces of the ruined world are stitched back together. But then Sperber and Luchs are torn apart. And Sperber will follow his love to a place from which there is no return. For love, wounding and healing at once, bestows powers which are otherwise beyond the reach of man. Anna Weber tells the story of a love that will stay with the reader through the day, like last night’s wild dream.
