Ein Tag, der alles zerstörte. Eine Mutter, die ihr Kind verlor. Und ihr Wunsch nach Vergebung, der nie verging – eine bewegende Geschichte um Liebe, Reue und Hoffnung. Sie verlor ihre Tochter an dem Tag, an dem die Bombe fiel. Ama hatte sich mit Yuko verabredet, um mit ihr über den Mann zu sprechen, den Yuko so liebte und Ama gleichermaßen verabscheute. Doch dazu kam es nie. Ama war zu spät – und ihre Tochter und ihr Enkel tot. Ama ließ Nagasaki hinter sich, wanderte nach Amerika aus, aber der Schmerz blieb. Nie konnte sie sich verzeihen, gab sich selbst die Schuld am Tod, ja sogar am Schicksal ihrer Tochter. Sie zog sich immer mehr zurück und lebte in ihrer eigenen Welt voll Trauer und Schmerz – bis ein junger Mann an ihre Tür klopft. Er sagt, er sei Hideo, ihr totgeglaubter Enkel. Zuerst will sie ihm nicht glauben, doch dann öffnet sie ihr Herz und lässt die Hoffnung herein ...

Audiences are problematic and the study of audiences has represented a key site of activity in the social sciences and humanities.

Audience experience can no longer be simply classified as `simple' or `mass', for in modern advanced capitalist societies, people are members of an audience all the time.

Ella ist vierzig Jahre alt, hat einen Ehemann, drei Kinder im Teenageralter und ein schönes Zuhause in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt. Eigentlich sollte sie glücklich sein, in ihrem Herzen breitet sich aber eine Leere aus, die früher von Liebe gefüllt war. Als Gutachterin für eine Literaturagentur taucht sie tief in einen Roman über den Sufi-Dichter und Mystiker Rumi und die vierzig ewigen, geheimnisvollen Regeln der Liebe ein. Trotz der Ansiedlung im 13. Jahrhundert scheint ihr der Roman immer mehr eine Spiegelung ihrer eigenen Geschichte zu sein. Zusehends distanziert von ihrem Ehemann, beginnt Ella, ihr bisheriges Leben zu hinterfragen. Sie besucht den Verfasser des Buches, Aziz Zahara, mit dem sie sich schriftlich schon rege und sehr persönlich ausgetauscht hat - und erfährt eine derart grundlegende persönliche Veränderung, wie sie es sich nie hätte ausmalen können.
