Love can be tough, especially starting again on the wrong side of forty. So when Griet Swart falls for a beautiful Italian who is a puppeteer, she is plagued by doubts and demons -- not to mention her noisy, nosy sisters. Their love burns bright, yet there is an ever-present danger that it could be snuffed out in an instant. Luca is pursued by his own demons after losing his wife and child in a fire, and Griet must tread gently, carefully. She calls on all the gods to bring her lover closer to her and, when they finally respond and Luca announces his intention to spend time in South Africa, Griet is stricken. What will he think of her eccentric family and her beloved land? And what will her family think of him? The plane touches down and the journey begins.
