Hilly's German grandmother, HeidiGran, comes to live with her family after she gets Alzheimer's disease- but as her mind becomes more muddled, secrets buried in her past start to emerge. Why does HeidiGran keep talking about a girl called Rachel? And why does she make racist remarks about Hilly's friend, Reuben?

This is a wonderfully evocative novel exploring the recurring prejudices that affect every generation.
