A stunning Spanish novel, depicting the tragedy of twentieth century Europe through one family's story of betrayal.


'A fascinating story of personal and political uprootedness. . . written with the delicacy that touches the reader's heart' Manuel Vilas

Winner of the Premio Ojo Critico

Katia has spent her childhood in the eastern shadow of the Berlin Wall. For her father, refugee of the civil war in Spain, the communist side of Germany represents everything he fought and suffered for. Katia knows no other way of life, until a chance encounter with a young man from the West leaves her to wonder what the other side might offer. It's only after she's made the perilous journey that Katia understands all she has left behind, and years until she will finally know the devastating consequences it had on her family.

Translated for the first time in English, this exquisite and powerful novel punches right to the heart of how one choice can change a whole future.

'A perfect novel' Almudena Grandes
