Publisher Description

Beneath the majestic towers of the Alhambra, Granada's cobbled streets resonate with music and secrets. Sonia Cameron knows nothing of the city's shocking past; she is here to dance. But in a quiet café, a chance conversation and an intriguing collection of old photographs draw her into the extraordinary tale of Spain's devastating civil war.

Seventy years earlier, the café is home to the close-knit Ramírez family. In 1936, an army coup led by Franco shatters the country's fragile peace, and in the heart of Granada the family witnesses the worst atrocities of conflict. Divided by politics and tragedy, everyone must take a side, fighting a personal battle as Spain rips itself apart.

The Return

Loved the book. Was heartbreaking but very interesting and a bit of history I wasn't really aware of.

As always, Victoria Hislop has done her homework and covers this period of modern history extremely thoroughly.

The Return

What a great book. Didn’t realise how terrifying was the Spanish Civil War. Drama, history, passion, life and death, love; it’s all here in this wonderful read.

The Return by Victoria Hislop

An amazingly poignant story that brings the horror of conflict to life depicting an incredible lack of respect for human life and the basic values that today so many of us take for granted. Everyone should read this book.
