The setting is Miami Beach 1972 when Miami hosted both the Democratic and Republican conventions and experienced the Cold War and the desegregation of the South. This poignant novel follows the Posner family - two Holocaust survivors, Sophie and Jacob, and their son Adam during this time. For the Posner family, Miami was supposed to be their salvation. Where better to be able to just blend in and live their lives? Instead they discover that Miami Beach is the opposite of camouflage. All the sunshine highlights the very things they want to forget and instead puts them on display and gives them a front row seat through such a transformational year in American culture.
