Thomas Nesbitt is a divorced American writer living a very private life in Maine.
Until, one wintry morning, his solitude is disrupted by the arrival of a package postmarked Berlin.
But what is more unsettling is the name accompanying the return address on the package: Petra Dussmann.
For she is the woman with whom Thomas had an intense love affair twenty-five years before in a divided Berlin, where people lived fearfully under the shadows of the Cold War. And so Thomas is forced to grapple with a past he has always kept hidden.
For Petra Dussman was a refugee from the police state of East Germany. And her tragic secrets were to re-write both their destinies.
