But in this world where communication seems so easy, for real people don't talk. And so without a otherworldly intervention, Brandon and Luke will loose all they have. And the intervention, the sign, takes the form of a bunch of letters: it's quite nice to see that, what the modern world (the technology, the fame of success) is destroying, an old fashion thing like a letter will save.
The book is really all here, not much more: the fashion of this short story, lies all in the words, both said in the past by old Brandon and Luke, who talked through their letter, and said in the present by this new couple who will learn from the mistake of their predecessors.
I like very much when Willa Okati writes fairy tales, since the only possible definition of this tale is fairy. It's not a full paranormal story, there are not angels or demons who make their appearance, it's more a feeling, it's almost like one of those old tales that people tell beginning with "you will not believe it but..."
