This novel describes a universe in which the landscape rural Alentejo is mixed with elements of fantasy. In the novel, there is almost no dialogue. The author uses the technique of stream of consciousness. It is a novel where the reader can find aspects of today's world transposed into the novel carefully and excellently portrayed by the characters. Through this novel, as well as others by this writer, the reader can live or relive the emotions that we can hardly find in books, where we can find the strength to be a human at the same time its weakness, the strength with which to establish friendships or relationships and a weakness that can break that bond. It is a journey through the lives of characters who both share moments of joy and moments of sadness and loneliness
