The Memory Stones A compelling tale of a young woman’s disappearance
in 1970s Argentina, The Memory Stones is a sweeping, epic story of a family
tragedy whose consequences echo throughout generations.

Buenos Aires, 1976. In the heat of summer, the Ferrero family escapes to the lush
expanse of Tigre. They will be the last days the family ever spends together.
Heartbreaking and beautiful, The Memory Stones tells the story of the Disappeared,
thousands of Argentinians who fell victim to the violence of the period. Depicting the
despair and hope of one family seeking to rebuild itself after unimaginable loss, it is a
lyrical, devastating portrait of a country that has come face to face with terror and the
long dark shadow it leaves behind.

Caroline Brothers was born in Australia. She has a PhD in history from
University College London and has worked as a foreign correspondent in Europe and
Latin America, and as a journalist at the International New York Times. She is the
author of War and Photography, and the novel Hinterland. She divides her time
between London and Paris.
