This sweeping historical fiction is told through dual timelines—in 1973 we follow the story of Santiago and his world in the years leading up to and during the dark times of Argentina’s Dirty War, and then in 1998, we follow his daughter Paloma on her quest to find out the truth about her dad’s life while on a return visit to Argentina for Santiago’s UN ambassadorial appointment.

This novel is beautifully written and wildly engrossing while also providing a plethora of historical information. This will give you hopeful moments and heartbreaking moments—ultimately giving you a glance at the humanity of these lives through the depth of these characters. A stunning debut novel!
