Overview

Spain, over a span of forty turbulent years, is the theatre for a drama of love, friendship, ideals, ambition and revenge in this powerful and passionate novel about the Spanish Civil War.

‘Gripping … a cross between Harold Robbins and Hemingway’ Sunday Express

On the bitter battlefields of the Spanish Civil War, an unlikely friendship is forged. Tom, an idealistic American, and Adam, a wayward young Englishman, fight on opposing sides, yet they have one thing in common – a passionate love for Spain…

With a fervour to match their own, a woman of Madrid is battling in the same bloody struggle. She is Ana, the Black Widow; young, beautiful, bereaved – and a dangerous freedom fighter.

But the end of the armed conflict will not end the conflicting emotions that draw these people together. For over forty turbulent years, from the dark days of Franco’s victory to the birth of modern Spain, they will be bound together in an intricate web – of love, betrayal, ambition and revenge…

Derek Lambert, who knew and loved Spain for many years, uses his unique understanding of Spanish history and character in this sweeping novel which encompasses some of the most crucial events of twentieth-century Europe, creates characters of extraordinary depth and humanity, and tells a story of compelling power and vitality.
