Summary

Escape to the Spanish hills with this spellbinding story of passionate love, family secrets and betrayal

A country in the shadow of war. A love that burns through the decades....

Mia Ferris' heart has always belonged in Spain. Every childhood summer was spent at her grandfather's hacienda, riding together amongst the olive trees or listening to his stories of the past. So when she learns that he has fallen from his horse, she knows that she belongs by his bedside - even if it means leaving behind her life in London, and her new fiancé.

But as Leonardo fights for his life, and Mia to save the family home from financial ruin, secrets begin to emerge that tell a different story of the past - a terrible history that begins with a boy running for his life over the Andalusian hills, and ends with a forbidden love that only war can destroy....

As Mia untangles the passions and betrayals of the past, everything she thought she knew is turned upside down. Can she heal the wounds of the past, and face the truth of her own heart?

A sweeping novel of passionate love, betrayal and redemption, set against the turmoil and tragedy of the Spanish Civil War.

Critic reviews

"Shadows Over the Spanish Sun is scorching. It was a joy to ride across the Andalusian hills and to be transported by parallel, truly heart wrenching love stories, past and present." (Carl Hester, Olympic Gold Medalist in Dressage)

Amazing story about love and the Spanish Civil war

This captivated me from the start. Characters have real depth to them and the author has a whimsical quality to her writing that is lovely. Very gripping story and genuinely didn’t want it to end. I loved her book An Italian Affair but this is possibly even better.
