I believe grief is inevitable for anyone and we will all experience it one day or another. Agnès meets it totally unexpectedly and looses her beloved husband Colin and their daughter Clara in a car accident. She could not accept life without them.
It's a pure coincidence that I was reading simultaneously three books at the same time which depicts stories about love in the time of war. ''My children'' by Guzel Yakhina followed ''Zuleikha opens her eyes'', the first book I've read by the same author. ''The Tattooist of Auschwitz'' by Heather Morris ''found me'' after my visit to the concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau and I was captivated by all the details I saw with my eyes there. The third book about lovve in time of war is the Bulgarian novel ''The Peach Thief'' by Emilian Stanev.
