This technique also leadsher to live with her accident and pushes her exploration beyond proven recipes. Thus, it avoids repetition anddares renewal.
The singular universe of Melsa Montagne, populated by beings unique and disturbing in spite of their humanityand their delicate demeanor, insists against superficiality and the »too perfect » image.
