General Note
First published in Israel as Ekh le-ehov et bitekh by Kinneret, Zmora, Dvir--Publishing House Ltd., Modi'in, in 2021.
"The seemingly inexplicable estrangement between a woman and her grown daughter opens up a troubling conundrum: What damage do we do in the blindness of love? Thousands of miles from home, a woman stands on a dark street, peeking through well-lit windows at two little girls. They are the grandchildren she's never met, daughters of the daughter she has not seen in years. At the center of this mesmerizing story is the woman's quest to understand how a relationship that began in bliss-a mother besotted with her only child-arrived at a point of such unfathomable distance. Weaving back and forth in time, she unravels memories and long-buried feelings, retracing the infinite acts of parental care, each so mundane and apparently benign, that in ensemble may have undermined what she most treasured. With exquisite psychological precision, Blum traces the seemingly insignificant missteps and deceptions of family life, where it's possible to cross the line between protectiveness and possession without even seeing it-and uncertain whether, or how, we can find our way back"--,Provided by publisher.
