Sofia Solanas grows up on a magnificent ranch in the middle of the Argentine pampa. Spoilt, wilful, resourceful and proud, she is loved by all around her. All, that is, except her Irish mother, Anna, who punishes her daughter for her own sense of alienation and inadequacy while doting on her sons.
Then Sofia embarks on a passionate love affair that can only bring shame upon the family. When a horrified Anna discovers the relationship, she sends Sofia away to Europe, inadvertently exiling her from her family and the man she loves for over twenty years. And then a family tragedy calls Sofia home.
Following the story of the Solanas family in Argentina during the tumultous years of political upheaval, and Sofia’s life in exile, MEET ME UNDER THE OMBU TREE is a moving, evocative and unforgettable story of love and forgiveness from a brilliant new voice.
