I enjoy novels, but I have a particular fondness for short stories. I also have a passion for the love theme. This story is about love. There are sadness and pain in the life of Flor the heroine, resulting from a broken love relationship – one that went wrong, “bad love” and the inevitable consequence. So easy to judge the misfortunes of others, but the act of love remains a risky business, and far from being easy to handle. Love remains essential in our lives – whatever its object. The narration is smooth and metaphorical, and one of beauty. The initial scene sets a mood, intertwining with that of Flor, the protagonist. The reader is at once drawn into the dilemma that Flor has been confronted with for a year, wrestling with memories of happiness and sadness. An overwhelming struggle to overcome the sorrow, the pain, she endures. As I continued my way thru this tale, my heart is in my hands, torn between the desire for Flor to free herself from the clutches of her love or, through the act of atonement, and reunite with her lover, in the spirit of a genuine, mutual love. But the conclusion I leave for the reader to find out.
