by Rajah E. Smart & Felicia M. Banks
Rizuu knows the precise moment when his world fell apart: the instant his longed-for daughter was born, he saw her dark skin and curly hair. He and his wife, Ayami, had been trying for years for this pregnancy. Ayami confesses that she has been unfaithful, and the child is not Rizuu’s. Rizuu seethes with anger. After taking her life in a moment of rage, he has a series of impossible events that always begin with the aroma of cherry blossoms, the symbol of life and love. The dreams take him on a journey that shows him what life would be like without Ayami and baby Amaya.
