When his elder brother Miguel decides to stow away on a cargo ship to Greenland, Jorge, the novel’s central character, copes by absorbing the tantalizing tales of the servant woman Adia, whose stories and infallible memory give Jorge a vivid picture of his mother when she was alive, of the fading city where he and his brother were born, a former Spanish port town in the Pacific, where Vasco da Gama’s great flagship the San Gabriel strayed long ago on its voyage to India, met disaster and sank.None of Adia’s seemingly inexhaustible yarns can explain her strange connection to Jorge’s family or why she ended up raising the two boys.

Jorge’s quest to understand the past takes him to the capital, where he learns of his family’s struggles through war and politics. There he also discovers that Adia’s enchanting accounts have concealed her own role in the family’s tragedy.A story about love, heartbreak, and the curative wonders of childhood.
