A young woman passionately living her daily life, enjoying love, motherhood, and success. A man, a lover, the one who is beloved unexpectedly finds that his emotions have eroded, they are in doubt. Both characters though incomplete, they will take different paths, that will lead to the solitude of their existential questions - to self-knowledge. For her: The encounter of innocence with fate or the pain of knowledge and purification. For him: The essence of the life he missed. A novel about memory and time, about death, about their power over our souls. The Anniversary of the Roses is a hymn to motherhood and, at the same time, the reality about the cruelty of the modern world that conflicts with the most poetic hour of a woman: the birth of her child.
