“Audentes fortuna iuvat” – Virgilio. “Fortune favors the bold.” The novel Apocryphal love tells a love story between a Bulgarian woman and a Nigerian man. The story develops in the context of racial prejudices in Bulgaria, in the 80s of the 20th century. The relationships between the main characters, Anna and Matthew, have inevitably influenced not only by the racial prejudices of the majority of society, but also by Anna’s and by Matthew’s characterized peculiarities. Raised in a family lacking of love, Anna grew up with “Abandoned child syndrome”, which defines her behaviour in her relationships with Matthew. She is like a programmed to perceive herself as abandoned. She does not make plans for the future of her love. Matthew is a young man with a strong character. His dream is to become a good doctor. He is purposeful. He knows what he wants. In this country with people hostile to the colour of his skin, his passionate nature has a strong need of love. He believes Anna loves him. Then, why does she not dream the two of them to start a family and have children? Does this love have a future? “You get in the life what you have the courage to ask for,” unknown author.
