Compact, haunting, and lovely ... it is unhurried and assured; no word is wasted ... In both its rich and unapologetic descriptions of domesticity and frank attitude toward sex ... the book is a treatise on one individual's womanhood.
--Kirkus Reviews

A woman gets up in the middle of a wintry night and starts baking a Bundt cake while her lover sleeps upstairs. When it's time for her to take the cake out of the oven, we have read a tale of romance and death. The narrator of this novel was widowed years ago and is trying to find new passion. But the memory of her deceased husband and a shameful incident still holds her in its grasp. Why did he do it? Margriet de Moor, master storyteller and one of Europe's foremost novelists, recounts a gripping love story about endings and demise, rage and jealousy, knowledge and ambiguity--and the possibility of a fresh start.
