    Book details

Twenty-year-old Luz, an Argentinian, is on holiday in Madrid with her husband and new born son. But secretly she has a mission - to find her real father. Carlos was a 'desaparecido' - one of the many political activists in Argentina who literally 'disappeared' during the country's brutal military dictatorship in the seventies - while her mother, a political prisoner, was killed trying to flee the country. The infant Luz was secretly adopted by a wealthy couple, unaware of her true origins. Only three people know Luz's real identity - Eduardo, her 'father', racked by guilt at this deception: the powerful and corrupt General Alfonso, her 'grandfather', determined to keep the secret buried: and Miriam, the prostitute who befriended Luz's real mother in her final days and who returns from exile determined to tell Luz the truth. 'My Name Is Light' is a gripping, emotionally charged book, a powerful story about a young girl's quest to find her identity and to uncover the deadly secrets of one of Argentina's darkest periods.
