The book is set in a fantasy world where this is possible. If you want to get rid of the hated memory you simply have to pay the bookbinder a visit. He will write your story down, bind your book and gone are thoughts that once caused agony. It is however a shameful thing to do and always happens in secret.
But what happens if the services of the bookbinder are abused by evil people? What if someone forced you to get rid of a memory? A memory of the greatest love story there has ever been?
