The narrative of this wonderful gem of a novel weaves together a rich tapestry of characters who are both nameless and faceless, representing Everyman and Everywoman, to tell stories of parting and return, suffering, healing and desire in a lyrical and moving exploration of the human heart. Like a bird in flight, the reader travels across a borderless landscape composed of tales of daily existence, news reports, allegories and ancestral myths, becoming aware in the course of the journey of the interconnection of individual lives.
