Summary
"Ana knows little about her real mother: she was taken away from Angola before she was two years old. She's got a name, Solange Mendes, and a photograph, which might be her mother, but there are two women in it and she doesn't know whether it is a clue or not. The only thing she knows for sure is she must find Solange. Luanda, Angola, is a long way from Ana's adopted home in Dublin, but it's the only place to start. As the narrative switches between Ana's search and her parents' relationship, beginning with their first meeting in a cafe in 1960s Lisbon, Walking On Dry Land builds a delicate portrait of how a family secret can lie undisturbed for a lifetime."--Page 4 of cover
