      And suddenly, he thinks only of her, his wife. This person whom he doesn’t know
      how to love and who is now falling prey to a gnawing disease. This woman is his,
      this woman whom he knows so little about and whom he would like to be with
      him. Right now. Just like before.

      that illegally crossed the Mediterranean to southern Spain, the gateway to the
      coveted European Eldorado.
