Trying to make sense of what has happened, she recalls memories of shared times and stories past, and in facing the darkness she finds a way back from the tangle of fear and confusion, to feel connected once more with her friends and family. Joseph Coelho deploys a wide variety of poetic forms with consummate skill in his narration of events, seamlessly but searingly weaving together the ancient legend of Daphne, who was turned into a tree to avoid the attentions of the god Apollo, and a totally modern tale, mixing real life and fantasy, in which a latter-day Daphne seeks her own freedom.
