It is 1936 and Spain is on the brink of civil war. Across Europe, young men are enlisting in the International Brigade to free their Spanish brethren from the grip of fascism, leaving sisters and lovers at home. But not all women are content to be left behind. In Britain, Charlotte McBain and Libby Forbes, friends from opposite sides of the class divide, are determined to do what they can; in Spain, Rosita García Díaz, fiercely loyal to her family and country, cannot stand by and watch. Three brave women, inspired by patriotism, idealism, love and even revenge, dare to go into battle against tradition and oppression. Tying them all together is Jo, Libby’s granddaughter. Five decades later she travels to Spain hoping to make sense of a troubling letter hidden among her grandmother’s possessions. What she learns will change all of their lives forever. Deceit, heartbreak and a longstanding fear of reprisals must all be overcome if the deeds of the forgotten women are to be properly honoured.

Author Bio: Freda Lightfoot

Author Bio: Freda Lightfoot

Freda Lightfoot has been a teacher, bookseller, and, in a mad moment, a smallholder on the freezing fells of the Lake District where she tried her hand at the “good life” by keeping sheep and hens, planting a small wood, and even learning how to make jam. She has now given up her thermals and built a house in an olive grove in Spain, where she produces her own olive oil and sits in the sun on the rare occasions she is not writing. She still likes to spend the rainy summers in the United Kingdom. She has published over forty novels, including many bestselling family sagas and historical fiction.
