Valentine is led on a mystery of the Heart, to discover the truth of the one he has come to love, so unexpectedly.Why is she so mysterious? What is the truth of her life? How can he love someone who seems so indefinable?They share a mutual uncontrollable passion – indeed, neither has known feelings so irresistible in their lives.
