(From the publisher):
A poetic story that reflects the depth of love and life.
Rarely does an adolescent love reach its full potential. What happens when, after eleven years, two lovers come together? Pilar has become an independent and strong young woman. Her childhood friend has become a handsome spiritual leader. She has learned to bury her feelings, while he has turned to religion as a refuge from his inner conflicts.
Together they embark on a journey that is initially fraught with difficulties, as blame and resentment resurface after years of being hidden. But by the River Piedra, in a small village in the French Pyrenees, they discuss many of life's big questions and reevaluate their own special relationship.
