I know I should let this one breathe before I attempt a review. But I don't think waiting will make it any easier finding the right words. I wish I had the writing chops to do it justice.
My words: This story is heartbreaking, unutterably sad but so beautiful you won't mind sobbing your eyes out over Saturday lunch.
Other peoples' words: Way more eloquent than I could ever hope to be.
...“I gave you all my secrets, and you lost them all. You lost a lot of things.
But the treasure of it was in the giving, not the keeping.”
The writing is sparse but deadly. It will break your heart but you won't really mind.
Julio, thank you. <3
