Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Niamh

Elena, a lady with Parkinson's living in the heart of Buenos Aires, crosses the city in search of help after her daughter Rita was found dead in their local church on a stormy night. The police rule out any question of suspicious activity, but Elena knows differently... In a masterpiece of mystery that leads the reader to question everything we think we know to be true, Claudi Piñeiro trails us through a physical and emotional journey of motherhood, womanhood, illness, desire, and determination.

In a single day, a journey across Buenos Aires reveals a daughter to her mother, a mother to herself, and the oppressive weight of received ideas to women connected by a fleeting encounter, twenty years before.
