Jana Petken

Author Jana Petkenabout this book: In 1912, Kent, England, Celia Merrill flees from her husband, who is suspected of murder. In the guise of a widow, she finds a home in Spain with a family of Spanish aristocrats from Valencia. Years later, Spain becomes embroiled in a Civil War, and Celia finds herself with no choice but to run back to the country of her birth, with her second husband, Ernesto.

Still in Spain, Celia's two sons march to war under opposing banners; one with General Franco and his German allies, and the other with the legitimate Spanish Government. And in Valencia her identical twin daughters are ripped apart by the Catholic Church.

In this suspenseful and compelling story of war, there are not only bullets and bombs threatening the lives of the Merrill family, but also the resurgence of an evil figure from the past, seeking vengeance.

Three generations of Merrills fight to survive while coming to terms both with the horrors of wartime and personal bouts with excessive pride and passion.
