This is a lovingly illustrated adult fairy tale about a postman who falls in love with a raven. They stay together and have a child, a girl who is a raven at heart and feels trapped inside her human body. It's an unusual story with a dreamlike quality that unfolds in a matter-of-fact but magical way. I enjoyed it very much!
