Sinopsis



Madrid, 1957. Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding a dark secret. Meanwhile, tourists and foreign businessmen flood into Spain under the welcoming promise of sunshine and wine. Among them is eighteen-year-old Daniel Matheson, the son of an oil tycoon, who arrives in Madrid with his parents hoping to connect with the country of his mothers birth through the lens of his camera. Photography'and fate'introduce him to Ana, whose familys interweaving obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War'as well as chilling definitions of fortune and fear. Daniels photographs leave him with uncomfortable questions amidst shadows of danger. He is backed into a corner of difficult decisions to protect those he loves. Lives and hearts collide, revealing an incredibly dark side to the sunny Spanish city.

Master storyteller Ruta Sepetys once again shines light into one of historys darkest corners in this epic, heart-wrenching novel about identity, unforgettable love, repercussions of war, and the hidden violence of silence'inspired by the true postwar struggles of Spain.

Includes vintage media reports, oral history commentary, photos, and more.
