Katelijn | 2 comments About 5 years ago I read a book (written in Dutch, or translated to Dutch?) in two parts.
The first part was about a romance on a night train (maybe in Asia???) between a man and a woman. The main character is male.
The second part takes place in an Italian village, I remember a traditional funeral and the man and the woman swimming in the sea.

Katelijn, what's the time period of the story?

Can you tell us more about the main character's - their home countries, are they strangers, their ages, jobs/skills/interests, rich/poor, etc.?

What's the tone - romantic, angsty, steamy/clean, funny, sad, etc.?

Katelijn | 2 comments I guess I read this book around 5-10 years ago. The main characters (young, European) are strangers first, but then become lovers. I think the girl nearly drowns in the sea or tries to commit suicide but I cannot remember exactly. I also don't remember if she is rescued. The atmosphere is first romantic, and then more strange and alienating.
