@ Carolann Copland

July 1946
Once … in Andalusia, teenagers Enrico Sanchez and Sonia Almez made a vow of love everlasting. Then Sonia’s brother was murdered by Franco’s Nationalists, and Enrico, filled with a burning need for revenge, set out on a dangerous path.

Now… Sonia must flee Spain and struggle to build a life for herself in Ireland. Enrico is on the run, hunted by both Nationalists and Republicans.

They know that they should be together, but is their love worth doing something unthinkable?

February 2020
Shona Moran travels to Spain to find her grandmother’s family and the sense of belonging she has always yearned for. As she unravels seventy years of Sonia and Enrico’s story, Shona unearths more than she expects.

Should the truth about her grandmother be told? Or is a lie sometimes the only kindness?

Mosaic revisits characters from Carolann Copland’s other novels, Summer Triangle and Scarred, but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

“A beautifully written and captivating, sweeping saga. An evocative story of love, heartbreak and redemption, against a richly imagined landscape.” Zoe Miller, author of A House Full of Secrets

    What a thrill Carolann Copland has created with her third novel Mosaic. Historic love story spanning Spain to Ireland marries Spanish political unrest. You will be encapsulated by this unputdownsble book. A great read for everyone.

  2. Patricia O’Reilly

    Carolann Copland’s third novel ‘Mosaic’ is a glorious escape, a sweeping saga, set between the 1940s and the 2020s, located in Spain and Ireland. This is a pacy account of the love between Sonia and Enrico, hampered by time, place, cultural differences and the warring Nationalists and Republicans. Copland’s characters are strong and clearly drawn; her dialogue is crisp and to the point; and the plot has satisfying twists and turns with an emotionally satisfying ending.
