In the war-torn nation of Illyria, Maya just wants to grow vegetables and live in peace. But she has a dark secret she can never reveal, especially to her beloved Yuri.
Written in the tradition of Fritz Leiber’s classic, “The Man Who Never Grew Young,” and Martin Amis’s Time’s Arrow, uniquely told from a woman’s point of view. The story’s title is an homage to the 1959 film by Alain Resnais, “Hiroshima, Mon Amour.”
The ebook includes an Afterword.
