I'm enjoying reading this. Axl and Bea's love and ties to one another are sweet and moving.The setting of the novel is mysterious--the atmosphere of and references to forgetfulness or sleep suggests something has happened to them or the world they live in(I can't determine which). Perhaps also allegory/metaphor.Does anyone see any similarities between it and the legend of Baucis and Philomena?
