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?
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?
