Location(s): Jerez

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical, Romance

Era(s): First half 20th Century

Set at the beginning of the last century, and spanning the First World War and the Spanish Civil War, this is a gripping story of family pride, forbidden love, secrets and lies.

When her grandfather dies without leaving a male heir, Charlotte and her mother must leave their family home, Clonmara. A distant cousin, Richard Selwin, inherits her grandfather’s estate and the title of Lord Blodmore. Charlotte and Richard are instantly drawn to one another, but a cruel twist of fate prevents them from being together.

Charlotte and her mother settle in Spain, among the families and vineyards of the great Spanish sherry dynasties. But the shocking events of a summer decades earlier have far-reaching consequences for Charlotte in the present. Her destiny will be shaped by both her enemies and her allies in this foreign land.
