As they are separately (and secretly) drawn to her, things start to unravel. The 'rules' are still the rules, to be taken seriously, not to be broken....

“Intelligent and beautifully written”

An intelligent and original take on relationships. Some beautiful landscapes and intriguing plot. Not a clichéd version of the genre but very likeable and intriguing, knotty characters relaying joy and pain.
