Do you remember seeing a lady at a window waving to you? You were playing ball in the garden, and you werenít sure if you should wave back, but you did grin. Of course you donít remember. For you, it will be sixteen years ago, but for me it is just Saturday last. It makes me sad not to know you.

When Henrietta finds herself excluded from seeing her grandchildren, she decides to write to them to explain their Afro-Caribbean origins in slavery.

She tells the story of her childhood in Bermuda, of marrying a British soldier, bringing up six children in Gibraltar and moving to England on her husbandís retirement from the army. Writing the letters reveals unexpected and challenging truths about herself and her family, which give her food for reflection.

Do her grandchildren ever receive the letters? And if so, how true a picture of their grandmother and family do they paint?
