Publisher's Summary

At once an epic family drama and a sweeping love story that spans both an ocean and a generation, Palm Trees in the Snow is an emotionally gripping and historically vivid tale of the secrets that can destroy a family - and the bonds that endure.

When Clarence of Rabaltué discovers a series of old letters from her father's past, she begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about her once-noble family. Her father and his brother worked in the colony of Fernando Po, but these letters tell a different story than the tales of life in Africa that made it to the dinner table. Clarence has no idea what really went on during their time at the cocoa plantations - or why no one in her family has ever returned to the island in all the years since. But the letters suggest that a great love story is buried beneath the years of silence.

Setting out from her home in Spain's snowy mountains, Clarence makes the same journey across the sea that her uncle and father traveled before her. There, she unlocks the painful secrets her family has hidden in the rich African soil. But what she discovers may also be the key to awakening her own listless heart.

    "Lessons learned from living"

    The book started off a little slow and I was lost and thought maybe I should just stop and move on to another book but I am glad I stuck with this book because the story was wonderful. I was transported into another world where cultures clashed sometimes shamefully, I was given the gift to witness a love story than spans through all time , tragedy, heartbreak and happiness unfold. I was taken on a journey where the past meets the present and secrets unravel and forgiveness and understanding is found.

    Story
    "Historical Romance"

    If you like romance and history plus learning about new cultures you'll love it. A lot of research went into the novel. Loved the narrator. Thought I'd check out the English dubbed movie on Netflix. Pretty disappointing after the book as so much of the explanatory background was eliminated. It's ok based on length of movie.

    Story
    "Love is heart breaking when not allowed to blossom"

    This was a beautifully written story on Colonial Guinea's culture birthing into an independent nation along with the heart ache it raged in the personal live of its people. Even though Basila and Killian were desparetely in love, their lives were torn apart by its newly forming government.

    Despite their not seeing each other in decades, they still considered themselves husband and wife in their souls even though Killian married someone else in his homeland of Spain.

    This was a well written and plotted out story that made one feel hopeful for Basila and Killian. The naration was well performed which made me fall in love with the characters.

    "If you love the movie then the book will take your"
    What did you love best about Palm Trees in the Snow?

    This is my favorite movie. I can watch it back to back to back. The book brought so much more. Yes, the story is a little different, but not too far off. A lot of research went into this and makes it feel more real.


    What about Malcolm Hillgartner and Angela Dawe ’s performance did you like?

    They both do an amazing job but I love Kilian in the book and in the movie so when Malcolm read I was more excited.


    Any additional comments?

    You must read this if you love historical romance fiction. I say watch the movie on Netflix first then read the book!
