Summary

Beneath the majestic towers of the Alhambra, Granada'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 café, 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 café is home to the close-knit Ramírez 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, everyone must take a side, fighting a personal battle as Spain rips itself apart. Captivating and deeply moving, Victoria Hislop's second novel is as inspiring as her bestselling debut, The Island.

Very Nice

I quite enjoyed this book it really did open me up to the Spanish Civil War and lead me to do more research about that time. But I found the story in the present day and its link to the past a little bit contrived.
