The Return by Victoria Hislop Beneath the majestic towers of the Alhambra,Granada's cobbled streets resonate with music and secrets. Sonia Cameron knows things of the city's shocking past; she is here to dance. But in a quiet cafe, 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 cafe is home to the close-knit Ramirez 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 international bestselling debut, The Island.
