“Why did Orpheus turn back?

“The City in Crimson Cloak” is a very old book, I wrote it 20 years ago, when I was 30 years old. I was still a young woman, and almost dying. After my return from Rio I became very ill, I was starving to death for a reason no doctor could find out. Later on I was diagnosed with cancer, but I did not know the reason. So confrontation with death and mortality was very real.
