The Sands of Gijón

Gabriela Exilart

NOVEL. PLAZA & JANES, 2019. 448 PAGES

Just when we fall in love, the world falls apart...

Gijón, 1936. A pair of brothers come into the life of young Marcia, daughter of a powerful businessman. A forced, loveless marriage to keep up appearances. Secret passions start to bubble to the surface. A flight from battle. Who will win the young woman's heart?
The Spanish Civil War is tearing through the hearts of families, friends and neighbours, putting loyalties to the test and even disrupting the realm of shameful urges and emotions. This is a paean to hearts that smoulder with love without ever being able to say it out loud in a world being ripped to shreds.
