A powerful saga of family love, honour and betrayal, set in Barcelona in the lead-up to the Civil War and Paris in the 1970s
Let me tell you a story…The granddaughter of Spanish refugees, who fled Barcelona after the Civil War, Paloma Batton is an attentive student of the Paris Opera Ballet, that is, until she is visited by a ghost …
Leaving her a mysterious gift - a pair of golden earrings - the ghost disappears, setting Paloma off on a quest.
Paloma's exploration of her Spanish heritage, leads to a connection between the visitor and 'la Rusa', a woman who died in Paris in 1952, known for her rapid rise from poverty to flamenco star. Although her death was ruled a suicide, Paloma soon discovers that many people had reasons for wanting la Rusa dead… including Paloma's own grandmother.
Golden Earringstravels between Barcelona: before the Civil War, and Paris in the 1970s. It is a story of passion and betrayal, and the extremes two women will go to for love.
Nothing is ever quite as it seems…
