On the one-year anniversary of her son’s death, Sayuri finds herself on a subway station platform, and she doesn’t know how she got there.
Neither does Miwa, the station employee who has one eye on the lost and weary woman the moment their paths cross.
All it takes is one precarious step, and both Sayuri and Miwa are enveloped in a whirlwind relationship that brings them closer to the edge than ever before. For schoolteacher Sayuri, that means letting go of the life that is no longer hers to claim. For train enthusiast Miwa, it’s realizing that there is more to human existence than isolation and struggling to get by.
Every time they think about one another, a spark is ignited.
Every time they speak, kindling is thrown into the flame.
And every time they touch, the fire grows hotter.
Imagine what a single kiss contains.
AS ALL OUR FIRES BURN is a standalone romance. It contains themes of losing a child (before the start of the story,) and depression.
