A tale told through words and watercolours, echoing with a myth-like atmosphere. «There is a silence that amplifies the murmurs that grow from within. It is a silence that erases distance, time and our rough surfaces. Out of the silence, the call of a burning heart emerges and reaches the silver girl, who is submerged in darkness. She looks up and she understands. The call of her fire boy gently moves her, like a warm wind rustling the branches of a tree». Picture book, 19 illustrations.
