This is his home, and she always asks, despite the bowl decorated with her name in the breakfast cupboard, her shoes in the hallway. She doesn’t dare say ‘our home, my home.’
Sandrine knows she is unlovable. So when Monsieur Langlois makes space for her in his heart and in his home, she feels certain she has found someone to hold on to.
When his first wife shows up one day with accusations of abuse, she ignores them. Just as she ignores the way he’s starting to look at her, and the way she always feels like she is walking on eggshells. But the atmosphere is starting to suffocate her – and soon Sandrine realises that she desperately needs to find a way out.
