Young Maris has been summoned to his motherâs bedside as she nears the end of her life; she feels she must tell him her version of their family history, the story of his early life, and the ways in which he changed the lives of others. Maris was born with what some might call a blessing and others might deem a curse: his very large, very special ears enable him to hear the secrets of the dead, as well as the memories that haunt his Latvian hometown. Nestled in the woodlands on the banks of the Aiviekste River, their town suffered the ravages of war, then the cold shock of independence. As a boy, Maris found himself heir to an odd assortment of hidden letters; a school project provided the chance to share them, forcing the town to hear the truth from the past and face what it meant for their future.Â
About: From a critically acclaimed fiction writer comes the moving story of a boy with extraordinary ears who â with the help of a cache of his great-grandmotherâs letters â brings healing to a town burdened by the sins of its past.
