But Nicholas is drawn to his mysterious passenger, and the closer he gets to her, the further he is from freedom.

But as Etta plays deeper into the Ironwoods' game, treacherous forces threaten to separate her not only from Nicholas, but from her path home - for ever.

Die brief wat Theresa tussen haar eksman Theo se besittings n sy dood ontdek, skeur haar lewe oop. Jare lank het sy haar rug op Theo gedraai, ’n man wat sy laaste twee dekades in ’n inrigting moes deurbring. S ook het sy die land se verlede weggestoot, die tyd toe tienerseuns gestuur is om aan die grens te veg – ’n plek en ’n oorlog waarvan mense tuis bitter min geweet het. Vir Theresa self was dit ’n tydperk van eerste liefdes, disko’s en vakansies by die see.

Theresa besef gou die brief is deur ’n Kubaanse soldaat aan sy kind geskryf – iemand wat, indien hy of sy nog leef, nou minstens veertig jaar oud sal wees. Theresa weet in haar siel sy moet Kuba toe: om die soldaat se kind te soek, om die brief te besorg, om boete te doen vir Theo se dade en vir haar eie onkunde.

In swoel, afgeleefde Kuba, tussen kleurryke motors uit die vyftigerjare en geurige sigaarrook, word Theresa se soektog intiem vervleg met die lewens van mense wat in Angola as “die vyand” gebrandmerk is. S ontrafel sy wat dit beteken het om groot te word in die Suid-Afrika van daardie tyd.
