Sebastian is a former soldier scarred in the body but above all in the soul. Returning from the war he can no more live among the people, he is no more the man he was when he has left for Africa and for a war that has made he witnessed the death of too many people, men, women and children.

So he has choosen to live alone in an island but when he arrives dreams and strange things happen and he is irresistible drawn to a place: will he at the end find his peace after the war?

As always the fantasy of Emily Veinglory is full of visions: her writings are powerful and evocative, and also in a very short tale she managed to bring the reader in a world that is, at the same time, very real but total imaginary.

And if someone is asking to himself where is the love in this short story, I can say that, in a sort of way, there is love in this tale, but it is more the search of a man for the peace of his soul, than the search for love.
