Urban terrorism is not new. Barcelona was once a hotbed of intrigue, bombings and shootings. Jordi Vilaro finds love among the constant dangers and the deadly twists of fate. Will the young lovers survive against the onslaught of the fascist forces?
Through the early years of the twentieth century in the city, the Vilaro family face the challenges of poverty and violence with fortitude, as the city slides relentlessly towards civil war. Following “The Lions of Catalunya”, Jeremy Rowe’s new novel “Barcelona Sunset” is full of the richness and perils of life in Barcelona in the 1920’s and 30’s.
