THE OLIVE GROVES OF BELCHITE
A weekday morning in London. Maria flies in from Barcelona to choose a UK base for the Caves Gratallops cava business. The lover she will bring home will be the last person her Catholic family expects. Or her fiancé, Jordi Gratallops. A long-standing member of Opus Dei, he too finds himself in a crisis of loyalties when old enemies put his father's business in jeopardy. Both have secrets they will struggle to explain, and time is running out. Moving between the long shadows of the Spanish Civil War and the business battles of a global economy, “The Olive Groves of Belchite” is Elena Moya Pereira s tale of how the past haunts our lives and of the battles that have just begun when the fighting is over. The Olive Groves of Belchite is a layered, well-paced novel fusing times and themes within the framework of a love story with a difference.
