When stalled novelist Charlie Wasserman's investment-banker wife divorces him, he finds among her belongings a box of letters. Written between 1940 and 1944, the letters reveal a love affair between her grandfather, Theo, a forty-something lawyer at the time, and Flora, a much younger journalist.

Even though Wasserman's ex-wife has her lawyers instruct him to destroy the letters, an idea for a new book - a novel that could rekindle his career - is sparked.

As Wasserman's preoccupation with the story of Theo and Flora grows, their lives unfurl in a symphony of brilliant detail against the backdrop of 1940 Cape Town and the war in Europe.
