Secrets of the Pomegranate

Secrets of the Pomegranate

Author(s): Barbara Lamplugh

Location(s): Granada

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Contemporary

Passionate, free-spirited Deborah has finally found peace and 
a fulfilling relationship in her adopted city of Granada – but when 
she is seriously injured in the Madrid train bombings of 2004, it is 
her sister Alice who is forced to face the consequences of a deception they have maintained for ten years. At Deborah’s home in Granada, Alice waits, ever more fearful. Will her sister live or die? And how long should she stay when each day brings the risk of what she most dreads, a confrontation with Deborah’s Moroccan ex-lover, Hassan? At stake is all she holds dear… ‘Secrets of the Pomegranate’ explores, with compassion, sensitivity and – despite the tragic events – humour, the complicated ties between sisters, between mothers and sons and between lovers, set against 
a background of cultural difference and prejudices rooted in Granada’s long history of Muslim-Christian struggles for power.
