Book Description: Софія покладає значну частину власного життя на те, щоб розкрити таємницю загадкової хвороби своєї матері. Дівчина змучилася від її постійних скарг і примх, але з певним полегшенням відмовляється від не надто втішної дорослої дійсності заради матері та боротьби з хворобою. Доктор Ґомес — останній шанс, несмілива надія, за якою донька і мати вирушають на північ Іспанії. Але його дивні методи, здається, не стосуються медицини: хвороба прогресує і від того стає дедалі загадковішою. Софія здається собі детективом, який жадає справедливості й намагається з’ясувати, хто в цьому лиходійстві злочинець, а хто — жертва. Боротьба стає напруженішою, коли дівчина виявляє в собі не відомі їй раніше бажання…
