Synopsis

A novel of love, sacrifice and Salvador Dali, set against the backdrop of post civil war Catalonia. For fans of Victoria Hislop.



It is 1951 and sisters Ginny and Meredith have travelled from England to Spain in order to help Meredith recover from a terrible trauma.



They discover that the renowned artist Salvador Dali is staying in nearby Port Lligat. Meredith is fascinated by modern art, a legacy of her troubled past, and longs to meet the famous surrealist.



Dali is embarking on an ambitious new work, but his model has refused to pose. A replacement is found, a young American waiter whom Ginny has begun to fall for.



The lives of the characters become entangled as art, ego, loyalty and the heightened politics of Franco's Spain threaten to undo the fragile bonds that have been forged.



A powerful story of love, sacrifice and the lengths we will go to for who - or what - we love. Based on the real events behind Salvador Dali's painting Christ of St John of the Cross.
