9780670920037: The Seamstress

María Dueñas's million copy best-selling tale of adventure, tragedy, love and war, The Seamstress, a Richard and Judy 2012 book club pick.

Spain, 1936 and the brink of civil war.

Aged twelve, Sira Quiroga was apprenticed to a Madrid dressmaker. As she masters the seamstress's art, her life seems to be clearly mapped out - until she falls passionately in love and flees with her seductive lover.

But in Morocco she is betrayed and left penniless. As civil war engulfs Spain, Sira finds she cannot return and so turns to her one true skill - and sews beautiful clothes for the expat elite and their German friends.

With Europe rumbling towards war, Sira is lured back to Franco's Nazis-friendly Spain. She is drawn into the shadowy world of espionage, rife with love, intrigue and betrayal.

And where the greatest danger lies. . .

'María Dueñas is a true storyteller. Read this book and prepare to be transported' Kate Morton, author of The House at Riverton

'A wonderful novel with intrigue, love, mystery and tender, audacious and clean-cut characters' Mario Vargas Llosa

'A magnificent novel that flawlessly brings together history and intrigue' Juan Gómez-Jurado, author of The Moses Expedition

María Dueñas holds a PhD in English Philology and is currently a professor at the University of Murcia. She has also taught at American universities, is the author of several academic articles, and has participated in various educational, cultural and editorial projects. She is currently writing her second novel.

Recensione:

María Dueñas is a true storyteller. Read this book and prepare to be transported (Kate Morton, author of The House at Riverton)

María Dueñas's ambitious debut belongs to that increasingly rare genre: the historical epic...a richly satisfying novel (David Evans Financial Times)

A magnificent novel that flawlessly brings together history and intrigue (Juan Gómez-Jurado, author of The Moses Expedition)

A wonderful novel with intrigue, love, mystery and tender, audacious and clean-cut characters (Mario Vargas Llosa)

A literary cocktail that mixes adventure, espionage, glamour, aristocracy and passion ( La Vanguardia)

How can a novel be both cruel and tender, dark and luminous all at the same time, and keep the reader glued to its pages with a complex, captivating narrative? María Dueñas's novel manages to make this possible with a tale that is destined to become a literary classic (Javier Sierra, bestselling author of The Secret Supper and The Lady in Blue)
