Judy Rankin

The loyalty of a once-proud nation exploited by a pact it must honour; a war that divides families, friends and communities. Catelina Marés, a stubborn, beautiful and fiercely proud Catalan woman must fight for all she loves and holds dear while the twists of history and fate intervene. Will she find what her heart cries out for?


And what of her childhood friend, grown into a man who must put his country before all else. Will Mateo Amador lose everything and everyone he values to do his duty for his people?


Can love and duty co-exist; is allegiance more important than family; and must duty ultimately destroy?

Set against the backdrop of the Catalan Revolt during the Franco-Spanish War (1640 - 1659) this vivid tale of danger, honour and love will have you turning the pages until the last one, no matter the time.
