Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The narrator and their long-distance lover eventually decide to make do. Even though it’s not enough, it’s better than nothing.

Con: It’s a sold block of purple prose, much of which is simply nonsense. E.g. "Even ten million lightyears away, suspended between seconds, time beading silver-bright on molecules of dark matter, home has always been the silence I've held in the chapel of your hands."
