Jan has great ambitions for himself and his son. But will his dreams blind him to what matters most in life? Another sharply-observed, touching novel from 20th century bestseller Ursula Bloom.
‘She has always been able to tell a story.’ Everyman
Through hard work and determination Jan escapes from humble beginnings. He is driven by his love for the beautiful but frail Josette and their son, Luis.
When tragedy strikes, his loyal and dependable friend, Matina, is by Jan’s side. She recognises the child’s musical genius, and dedicates herself to it. Jan and Matina have great plans for young Luis. But he has ideas of his own. Perhaps all of their futures will be very different to what they imagined.
