I can't write a review as good as Westie's  chapter comment on the story, so I quote it here with attribution:


This story has a number of themes that I find often in Mark Arbour stories. We have the setting: Paris, at a turning point in history. There is a unique set of events unfolding in the world around the characters, but at the same time the characters are not obsessed by these events. Sure they are pivotal, but they do not overtake the story.


Another theme is the futility of war. Mark - as he often does - casts war as a destroyer force. He masterly crafts an atmosphere that accurately conveys the pointlesness of fighting. This story is very much a tale with the melancholy of war as its background.


A final, and most powerful theme is Sex as a Healing force - both emotionally and physically.


With this short story, Mark has once again shown us he is a master Wordsmith and craftsman.
