Summary
This is a story about a snow-covered island you won't find on any map. It's Minou's story. She's twelve. A year ago, the morning after the circus, her mama walked out into the rain with a black umbrella and never came back. It's a story about a magician and a priest and a dog called No Name. It's about Papa's endless hunt for the truth. It's about a dead boy who listens, and Minou's search for Mama's voice. And it's about discovering what love is
Summary
Living alone on a tiny, snow-covered island with her father, dog, and a magician, twelve-year-old Minou deals with her mother's abandonment and hopes to find an explanation when a dead boy washes up on the beach.
