"Luz, a twenty-year-old Argentinean, is on vacation in Madrid with her husband and newborn son. But Luz also has a secret mission - to find her real father." "Carlos was a desaparecido, one of the many political activists who disappeared in Argentina during its dictatorship in the seventies; Luz's mother, a political prisoner, was killed while trying to flee the country. Adopted as an infant by a wealthy, politically influential couple, Luz has grown up unaware of her true origins. Only three people know Luz's real identity: her adopted father, Eduardo, racked by guilt at this deception; her adopted grandfather, the powerful and corrupt General Alfonso, determined to keep the secret buried; and Miriam, the prostitute who befriended Luz's real mother in her final days and who returns from exile determined to tell Luz the truth. Faced with politics and corruption at every turn, Luz's search for her father rapidly becomes a fight to save herself."--BOOK JACKET.
