Summary
This is a novel of identity, loss and the lingering effects of war. Michael does not remember his father, who died in a Spitfire over the English Channel. And his mother, heartbroken and passionate, does not like to talk about him. But then Michael's aunt gives him a medal and a photograph, which begin to reveal a hidden story. A story of love, loss and secrets. A story that will change everything - and reveal to Michael who he really is
Summary
In World War II-era England, Michael learns about his black British Army soldier grandfather, a World War I officer who risked his life to save wounded men but who did not receive special commendations because of his race
