Two women arrive in a Spanish village, a dreamlike place caught between the desert and the ocean, seeking medical advice and salvation. One suffers from a mysterious illness: spontaneous paralysis confines her to a wheelchair. The other, her daughter Sofia, has spent years playing the reluctant detective, struggling to understand her mother's illness. Surrounded by the oppressive desert heat and the mesmerising figures who move through it, Sofia waits while her mother undergoes a strange programme of treatments.

Written in a stark style this book doesn't offer a traditional beginning, middle and end but is captivating and challenging to read. The characters are more exposed to us than simply portrayed. Not a lie-in-a-deck-chair-and-let-your-mind-drift-off read but worth the effort.
