published 2012 142 pages

On a Spanish-scented island, a languorous tango unfolds. People come and go, fortunes rise and fall like waves of the sea, men and women change partners — but the dance goes on. Although peopled with a colourful cast of characters, to one solitary observer this island paradise is a place where old elephants come to die. Hélène Rioux tells the exuberant tales of an ex-pat community.

Living comfortably in Montreal with the handsome, but inaccessible, Philippe, Eléonore is unable to sustain the facade of outward happiness.

As she writes of her life, repressed memories return, until Eléonore comes to terms with the pain of the past.
