A sweeping historical epic by an author whose novels have sold over 6 million copies worldwide.

1861. A ruined silver-mine owner sets sail from Mexico City to seek his fortune in the New World.

Mauro Larrera has just four months to pay his creditors, or his bankruptcy will be revealed and his family’s honour will be in tatters. In magnificent Havana — home to beautiful women and dangerous men who deal in mysterious trades — he gambles what little he has left on what will become the greatest adventure of his life …

A Vineyard in Andalusia is a novel of glories and defeats; of silver mines, family secrets, vineyards, cellars, and splendid cities of faded grandeur; of unexpected passion, and love in the strangest of circumstances.

Once again, María Dueñas’ powerful storytelling and rich historical detail transport us to a faraway time and place, and on an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘María Dueñas is a true storyteller.’ - Kate Morton, author of The House at Riverton

‘Evocative, tender, and lush’ - Diana Gabaldon, author of Cross Stitch, on The Seamstress

‘Richly satisfying’ - FT on The Seamstress

‘A complete delight.’ - Judy Finnigan on The Seamstress

‘It beams readers with pinpoint accuracy to the heart and soul of 1860s Mexico, Cuba, and Spain on a magic carpet ride that they will be sorry to have end.’ - Leila Meacham, New York Times bestselling author of Roses

‘Dueñas is a gifted writer … The Vineyard is destined to become a classic.’ - Armando Lucas Correa, international bestselling author of The German Girl

‘In [A Vineyard in Andalusia], Dueñas demonstrates the same breezy and entertaining style she wields to such great effect in her previous works. She is an author who seems to put story first, more interested in delivering a good old-fashioned yarn than in trying to impress you with literary pyrotechnics.’ - The Washington Post
