Resumen:

The Memory Stones : The compelling story of a young woman's disappearance in 1970s Argentina, a story of family tragedy--and national tragedy--with consequences echoing through generations.

Buenos Aires, 1976. In the heat of summer, the Ferrero family escapes to the lush expanse of Tigre. Osvaldo, a distinguished doctor, and his wife Yolanda gather with their daughters, sensible Julieta who lives with her husband in Miami, and willful Graciela--nineteen, radiant, and madly in love with her fiancé, José. It will be the last time they are all together.

On their return, the military Junta stages a coup, and Osvaldo is forced to flee to Europe as friends and colleagues disappear overnight. When José is abducted, Graciela goes into hiding; when she and her friends are dragged from an apartment by plainclothes policemen, the devastating reality of the Junta is no longer remote. Osvaldo can only witness the disintegration of his family from afar, while Yolanda fights on the ground to find and reclaim their beloved daughter. Soon they realize they may be fighting for an unknown grandchild as well.

The Memory Stones commemorates the thousands of Argentinians--the Disappeared--who fell victim to the brutality of the period, the effects of which are still being felt today. Following one family seeking to rebuild itself after unimaginable loss, it is the story--both heartbreaking and inspiring--of a country striving to survive even in the face of terror.
