Catalina, the grand-daughter of Spanish refugees is a disciplined student with the School of the Paris Opera Ballet. Little gets inthe way of her career until the visit of an otherworldly being, who leaves her a mysterious pair of golden earrings.

Given a quest, Catalina realises she must explore her own Spanish heritage and makes the connection between the visitor and 'La Rusa', a young Andalusian flamenco star.

La Rusa died in exile in Paris in 1952, her death ruled as suicide. But as Catalina begins to discover, there were those in the Spanish émigré community, amongst them her grandmother, who had good reason for wanting La Rusa dead.

    " I was very disappointed with this one. I couldn't finish it. I am not sure why but I might go back to it in the future. Much anticipated but can't win them all. "

    " Good story just didn't always enjoy how it was written "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 2/3/2014

    " Thanks for recommending this Katie! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I learned some history, enjoyed the family relationships and drama, and was intrigued by the ghost. After I got into it, I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janine | 12/17/2013

    " Very interesting book as I haven't read much about the history of Spain in the 20th Century. Easy to read family saga like all of her books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Belinda | 12/11/2013

    " Would give 4.5 if I could. Really enjoyed this. It took me a little bit to get into but this always seems to be the case for me for books with historical settings, especially when I am not very familiar with the context (in this case during the Spanish Revolution). Once it grabbed me, it grabbed me, as her books always do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 11/23/2013

    " A really awesome book. A bit hard to follow at times but eventually falls into place "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Landy | 11/20/2013

    " I came across this book accidentally and am so happy that I did. What a wonderful story of love, strength, revenge, pain and suffering with mystery in there too. I thought this was beautifully written. It was so hard to put it down and I was so surprised at the end! Awesome book. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 11/12/2013

    " I enjoyed the Spanish Civil War history in this very involved family story. Admittedly, I am a sucker for a good family/multi-family story, but this one has history and folk-lore in it. Well-written and I enjoyed every page. "

    " Loved this book and am so sad it had to end. Think it would be a great book group topic and inspiration for both French and Spanish food. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 9/8/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona Joyce | 8/15/2013

    " This book was fantastic read. The historical backing of this book gives the reader an interesting journey through the Spainish Civil War and life in Pairs in the 1970's. I found this book full of passion and hear break as you explore 2 women's stories that are linked to main charater of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 8/2/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Prior to reading this I knew next to nothing about the Spanish Civil War, so I learnt heaps. I loved how it was set in Paris and Barcelona. I have spent time in both cities, and recognised many landmarks mentioned. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Burton | 5/25/2012

    " Ultimately I enjoyed this book. Learned things a bout the Spanish civil war and the atrocities of the time. Loved the setting Barcelona , a city I'm familiar with. The style of writing wasn't engaging initially but I persevered. A bit of a convoluted story but all makes sense as the plot thickens! "
