In 2001-2002 I lived in Granada, Spain where I taught English. To say I fell in love with the place would be an understatement. When I started writing, there was no question that my first novel had to be set there.

This story begins in 1920 and finishes in 1976, the year of General Franco’s death. Following the lives of three generations of women from one family, Luisa, Isabel and Paloma, the narrative takes the reader through the turbulent years leading up to the Spanish Civil War, the war itself (1936-1939) and Franco’s dictatorship. As each woman strives to protect what they hold most dear to them, their strength of character and values come at a cost.

This is a story of one Spanish family devastated by war but is ultimately a tale of resilience, love and the power of hope.
