About the book
The Wagenaars used to be a picture-perfect family. With good jobs, a stable home and an affordable mortgage, Willem and Annet were living the dream and their three boys seemed destined for great futures. Now Willem, Annet, Micha and Ruben are traveling to Heidelberg, Germany, where Ruben is to be awarded his doctorate. Following the ceremony, they will be scattering the ashes of their eldest son, Cas. During the trip, it becomes apparent that they are each looking for their own way to come to terms with this huge loss – and that their individual lives have actually been in a state of crisis for quite some time.
Heidelberg is a confronting novel about grief and strained family ties.
