About the book Autobiographical book showing the author’s relationship with her couple. It shows different aspects of a “love story”. How loneliness can appear after a choice we make, in a search for tranquility, a need to explore, a separation from that world that surrounds you from which you do not want to be influenced. How there is a need of complicity to make things work. It shows the evolution of a couple under formation, and what happens when they choose to be “alone together”. They become one, and disappear, being now different, no longer composed by the sum of those two.
