Livros de Ontem Is pleased to present you the book by Alexandre Brea Rodriguez, "The White Book".

The white book tells a story of loss that begins when a person who until then had suppressed and made sense of his existence disappears from the life of the narrator. This personal failure symbolizes the death of a swan, which becomes a lost love metaphor, childhood and innocence.

This sense of vital emptiness compels him to confront himself with the world only on a physical and psychological journey. As if waking from a dream is finding a new meaning to everything that surrounds it, a process that leads to a personal rebirth. But you must face the problems you have always avoided, fall back on the same mistakes, learn to love one another and return home to rediscover your family, your culture and your past.

In this way we are weaving a history full of shades, where the earth, the people and nature acquire a great relevance and are deeply healing for him. At the end of the path brings together all the pain and everything learned to regain hope and happiness in your life and become a complete person by itself.

 

NOTE: The book has the value of 12€ during crowdfunding campaign and 14€ after closing the same.
