A mesmerising tale of discovery, of the search for identity and of the need for understanding and forgiveness. As a child raised by his mother in post-war Germany, Peter Debauer becomes fascinated by a story he discovers in the proof pages of a vel edited by his grandparents. It is the tale of a German prisoner of war who escapes from a Russian camp and braves countless dangers to return home to a wife who believes him to be dead. But the vel is incomplete and Peter becomes obsessed by the question of what happened when the soldier and his wife met again. Years later, the adult Peter remembers the vel and embarks on a search for the missing pages that soon becomes a mysterious search for his own father, a German soldier whom he always believed was killed in the war.
