Right at the beginning of this story, the narrator already makes some important observations about life: First, that people make a lot of decisions unconsciously, and second, that over time, memories become softer and more vague. As an example, he mentions the love and joy he and a former lover experienced, while he could not remember all the single moments that causes this joy and love. He is looking at the past, but soon heads out to new horizons. His quest for love is not over. While this novel is a novel about love, it also is so much more. The readers follow the protagonist on his search and feel for him when things don’t go quite as planned. They cheer him on and hope for the best – but is hope ever enough?

The story of the man who is the centre of this novel will touch each reader in a different way, but one thing is certain: no reader will remain untouched by it.
