Summary
A novel about love, memory, and motherhood. Nadine Morgan travels the world as a journalist, running from anything that might tie her down. Since an assignment in Cape Town ended in tragedy and regret, Nadine has not returned to South Africa, or opened her heart--until she hears the story of Jason Irving, an American student beaten to death by angry youths at the height of the apartheid era. Years later, his mother is told that Jason's killers have applied for amnesty. Filled with rage, she resolves to fight the murderers' pleas for forgiveness. As Nadine follows the Irvings to beautiful, ghost-filled South Africa, she is flooded with memories of a time when the pull toward adventure and intrigue left her with a broken heart. Hoping to lose herself in her coverage of the murder trial, Nadine grows closer to Jason's mother as well as to the mother of one of Jason's killers--with profound consequences.--From publisher description
