She’s tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: not of her cousin’s new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who is fascinated by Noem?; and not of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom.
