Summary

Un amor sorpresivo. Una ruptura incomprensible. Dos caras de una misma moneda. ¿Cómo puede convertirse el amor más luminoso y feliz en violencia que lastima, en ausencia que duele?

La anónima protagonista de esta novela ha sido expulsada de la vida del ser amado. Viviendo una relación feliz y estable con un hombre, descubrió el verdadero y más completo amor en una mujer. Sin pensarlo dos veces, tomó el riesgo y se lanzó hacia un romance que duraría más de una década. Pero la felicidad no le dejó ver que llegaría el día de la ruptura y que ésta no traería únicamente soledad, sino un profundo miedo. Miedo porque la persona amada ahora puede transformarse en su peor enemiga. Un miedo presente que le recuerda miedos más antiguos: exilios, desapariciones, violencias. Miedos suyos y miedos que son de otros. Sola, encerrada con sus pensamientos, rememora escenas del pasado. La alegría de entonces no la reconforta: la hiere con sutileza. Los recuerdos duelen, las fotos son ahora pedazos de memoria. Pedazos que deberá recoger y guardar en algún rincón para poder seguir adelante.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A surprising love. An incomprehensible breakup. Two sides of the same coin. How can a love so glowing and happy turn into violence and shame, into an absence that wounds?
 
The anonymous protagonist of this novel has been expelled from the life of her loved one. Living in a happy and stable relationship with a man, she discovered the true and more complete love of a woman. Without thinking twice, she took a risk and threw herself into a romance that would last for more than a decade. But happiness didn't let her see that one day the breakup would come and that it wouldn't just bring loneliness, but also a profound fear. Fear because the person she loves can now turn into her worst enemy. A present fear that reminds her of past fears: exiles, disappearances, violence. Her fears and other people's fears. Alone, enclosed in her thoughts, she remembers scenes from the past. The happiness of the past doesn't comfort her: it wounds her with subtlety. The memories hurt, the photos are now pieces of memories. Pieces that she has to pick up and put away in order to move forward.
