Summary
The past has a certain scent, don't you think? To me, it smells like Brazil. I held the letter to my face, inhaled and felt the years dissolve . . . Brazilian-born doctor Andre Cabral is living in London when one day he receives a letter from his home country, which he left nearly thirty years ago. A letter he keeps in his pocket for weeks, but tells no one about. The letter prompts Andre to remember the days of his youth - torrid afternoons on Ipanema beach with his listless teenage friends, parties in elegant Rio apartments, his after-school job at his father's plastic surgery practice - and, above all, his secret infatuation with the daughter of his family's maid, the intoxicating Luana. Unable to resist the pull of the letter, Andre embarks on a journey back to Brazil to rediscover his past and a terrible secret
Summary
A successful surgeon in London deals with the accidental death of his mother 30 years prior during his childhood in Brazil through recurring dreams and a mysterious letter from the daughter of his family’s former maid
