About the book
In 1935, Miguel Navarro finds himself in conflict with the Spanish Civil Guard and flees the Basque fishing village of Lekeitio to make a new start in Guernica, the centre of Basque culture and tradition. Once there, he finds more than just a new life – he finds someone to live for. Miren Ansotegui is the charismatic and graceful dancer he meets and the two discover a love they believe nothing can destroy . . .
Reviewed by Stubbington Book Buddies:
Generally found it engaging and promoted much discussion. Felt it conveyed a strong sense of Basque culture, history, family values and loss.
