From Croatia to France, from the lighthouse of Makarska to the theatres of Paris, Natasa Dragnic tells the captivating story of Luka and Dora, two inextricably linked souls, and love so close it cannot be separated. Dora and Luka are inseparable: ever since he fainted the first sight of her, walking into the classroom with her new schoolbag, and was awoken by her chaste kiss. 'There's something strange in the air when the two of them are together. You can't call it calm, and you can't call it storm.' Theirs is a passion made of kisses that taste like salt water and mandarin oranges; of shape-shifting clouds and coloured canvases; and, as Dora's family leave Croatia for Paris, of farewells and reunions. The years bring fateful choices and mistakes in which relationships, marriages, children, and even war conspire to keep the pair apart. In their pursuit of one another, Dora and Luka punish themselves and those around them, suffer and in turn cause others suffering. Will they ever really be able to find each other?
