About the book: 

Brazilian-born doctor Andre Cabral is living in London when one day he receives a letter from his home country, which he left nearly thirty years ago. A letter he keeps in his pocket for weeks, but tells no one about. 

The letter prompts Andre to remember the days of his youth - torrid afternoons on Ipanema beach with his listless teenage friends, parties in elegant Rio apartments, his after-school job at his father's surgery plastic practice - and, above all, his secret infatuation with the daughter of his family's maid, the intoxicating Luana. 

Unable to resist the pull of the letter, Andre embarks on a journey back to Brazil to rediscover his past.
