A life-changing journey, a family secret, a passionate encounter . . .

1945. When Katarina Sanchez is drawn into the world of flamenco, she’s forced to make a decision—comply with her affluent family’s rigid lifestyle or live a life of poverty but enjoy freedom and self-expression. Although Spain is crippled under a dictatorship, Katarina finds love. However, the tragedy of war brings heartbreak. An opportunity to right a past wrong arises, yet it comes at a cost for Katarina—save the lives of many or potentially lose the only man she’s ever loved.

Present day. Charlotte Kavanagh will do anything to fulfill the wishes of her ailing grandmother, even if it means travelling to Spain to uncover the truth behind a mysterious painting. As Charlotte explores Granada’s ancient cobblestone streets, she meets Mateo Vives, a man with a dark past and the only person who can help Charlotte complete her quest. As the secret surrounding the painting deepens, she discovers her grandmother’s connection to the Spanish underground. Weighed down by secrets and betrayals, Charlotte finds herself questioning the true meaning of heritage, family, and love.

A beautiful story (Tuesday, December 6, 2016)

This was a very well-written, vividly described book. Charlotte agrees to travel to Spain to find out the history of a painting that was given to her grandmother many years before. This leads her to Mateo, a gifted musician, who can help her get an introduction to a secluded gypsy clan. Mateo teaches Charlotte about flamenco, which will help her understand her grandmother's past. This book told Charlotte's story as well as her grandmother's. It brought Spain and the art of flamenco to life for me. I really enjoyed this book.
