Grégoire and Gloria have sworn to be together forever. Grégoire gives Gloria a blue ring, she gives him a red one. One day, Grégoire is late to meet Gloria, which has never happened before. She finds the red ring abandoned in the grass. She is first worried, then plagued by doubt and the thirst for revenge, while still wanting to tell him she loves him more than anything.

Each half of the couple asks themselves questions that are very hard to answer, and that is the great merit of this bittersweet book whose poetic text has much that is tender and profound to say between the lines, steering clear of clichés and avoiding a predictable ending. A simple yet subtle little novel. [Source: Ricochet]
