The Return

The Return

The Back of the Book: Beneath the majestic towers of the Alhambra, Ganada’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 cafe, 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 cafe is home to the close-knit Ramirez 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,e veryone must take a side, fighting a personal battle as Spain rips itself apart.
