Summary
When Gabriel Santoro publishes a book about Jewish refugees to Colombia during the 1930s, his fatherís angry reaction shocks him. After his father, a well-known university professor, becomes ill and dies in a car accident, Gabriel digs deeper into the past, uncovering facts that will destroy his fatherís reputation.
Critique
Questions of the sins of the past, silence vs. truth-telling, and the effects of war and exile dominate this beautifully written novel. Highly recommend.
