A shocking yet bright work about a harsh subject.
Your Love Is Infinite tells about 6-year-old Saara, who has been taken to her grandparents’ house for the summer because her parents aren’t able to care for her. Grandpa is the only adult Saara believes loves her, but it is precisely his violent love that drives Saara into a world of fantasy and guilt. Saara longs for her mother, but she isn’t able to help, and Saara is left to her grandfather’s mercy.
Without blaming anyone, Peura weaves a taut, beautiful, powerful tale about a difficult subject: incest. She writes about children’s trust and dependence, and how they manage to survive.
