Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The first highly acclaimed novel from an "immensely gifted and accomplished writer" (The Washington Post), about an Irishwoman who creates a new life in post-war Spain.

Set in the 1950s, this is the story of Katherine Proctor who "flees husband, child, and County Wexford (Ireland) for Spain. She, a Catalan lover, and another Irish emigre, painters all, fashion new worlds in their work while fighting past worlds in their lives" (Library Journal).
