This is a picture book for everyone, framed as a bedtime story (and love letter) to the author’s son. It follows the events of the little boy’s birth, and his mother’s struggle with her new role. In stunningly raw writing that cuts straight to the heart, Eihmane tells a story about love and where love comes from.
The book is beautifully illustrated by the author, in dark blues and reds, with expressive, blotchy artwork. The book is tactile, printed in risograph and stapled for a welcoming, open feel.

“Her prose is fluid, seemingly prone to surprises and unexpected twists, to happy accidents, sudden coalescence. Using bold colors, a daring brush, a commitment to be both honest and compassionate, she paints something fresh […] this short, satisfyingly square chapbook handles like a children’s story but delivers bold messages that will hit perhaps especially adults directly in the heart” – Ana C.H. Silva, MER Journal
