Novel set in WW2 FRANCE – guest review by Isobel Blackthorn
The #TFBookClub reads “Court of Lions” by Jane Johnson, set in Granada, Spain
17th January 2018
Thank you for joining us as we read Court of Lions by Jane Johnson, set in Granada, in Spain’s exotic Andalucia region.
We hope you enjoy reading this epic saga of romance and redemption, taking place through parallel stories around the end of the 15th century, at the end of the last Moorish dynasty in Spain, and in the present day, as Kate Fordham looks to rebuild her troubled life.
We will be chatting about the book through January and February 2018, so if you are reading it with us, please come and join the dialogue!
The #TFBookClub is your book club – we are here to help you discover new titles that will transport you to interesting locations via top literature for some exceptional #literarywanderlust.
Author Jane Johnson has written a wonderfully evocative piece for us, about living in North Africa, her research for Court of Lions and with some top tips on how best to visit the Alhambra and what else to see and do in Granada. Coming up shortly….
And TripFiction’s Andrew visited Andalucia recently too. Stay tuned to read his article for TripFiction partner Silver Travel Advisor, telling of his visit around the region, to the beguiling Alhambra and its beautiful Genarlife summer palace….and how he immersed himself in a traditional Moorish hammam, dreaming of the 15th century and the Court of Lions.
So, lots to look forward to as we read this compelling story in Granada together.
