Spanish Crossing - A Gripping Novel about Love Loss and Hope
Publisher: Bloodhound Books
The Spanish Civil War casts a shadow over a London woman’s life as she grows increasingly attached to a young Basque refugee . . .
After Lorna, a legal secretary, meets and falls in love with Harry, a member of the International Brigade, he is tragically killed in the fighting in Spain—and Lorna fears she might have lost her best chance of happiness. To fill the void in her life, she focuses on helping the child refugees of the conflict, newly arrived in England on a boat from Bilbao.
As Lorna discovers a connection to one boy, Pepe, their lives become increasingly intertwined in the postwar rebuilding of London after the bombing raids of World War II. But Pepe remains deeply pulled towards the homeland and family that have been placed beyond his reach—and their relationship will be tested by the tragic history they share . . .
From the author of The Good Messenger, Spanish Crossings is an epic tale of love, politics, the human connection that crosses all borders, and the yearning but elusive possibility of redemption.
