(2015)
A novel by

 
Ella has a difficult relationship with her domineering father, and with apartheid South Africa, the troubled country in which she lives. Whilst seeking political refuge in Europe Ella makes an unexpected discovery that forces her to confront both her father's ghosts and the shape of her own future. In the Netherlands, the country of his birth, her father, Ella finds, never officially recognized her existence. ""Boehmer creates a microcosm of apartheid South Africa, telling the story of one girl growing up in the shadows of her family's past. . The descriptions of the landscape are breathtaking, invoking the vastness of the country and the magic of childhood.""--Kirkus Reviews
