Part of the book:
The queen realized that she was slowly blooming in the sun. The pores of her skin opened. The heat ran down her neck. Her head warmed up. Her face felt hot. The sun started to sting her earlobes. Her skin was sweating from the freshness of the morning. Her lips were moving on fire. The sun and the smell of oleaster flowers intoxicated her. The queen slipped the scarf over her head and started to unbraid her hair.
