Nefeli, at the beginning of her fourth decade of life, feels that she is facing a dead end. Although she has always stood by her parents and brother, putting them first in her priorities, she is marginalized because she has decided to differentiate herself and make decisions in accordance with her own wishes for the first time.
Drawing on her personal experience, she begins a struggle to overcome worries, guilt and health problems that present themselves to her, discovering a plethora of similar cases to her. These new experiences help her to approach reality more objectively and to make changes in the way she deals with situations.
The book tries to outline the path taken by someone who feels betrayed and disappointed by her own family. On a second level, to describe and emphasize human characters and behaviors so that they can be more easily recognized and avoided. On a third level, to show that the phenomenon is very common, just hidden because it is taboo, especially in more traditional and closed societies.
Its ultimate aim is to suggest changes in the relationships between family members - for those who at least wish to have a solid foundation - leading each of us to stages of self-awareness and self-improvement.
