A Vineyard in AndalusiaBook - 2017
A ruined merchant sets sail to seek his fortune in the 19th-century Spanish Empire. Haunted by his lost wealth, he gambles the last of his money on what will become the greatest adventure of his life - and eventually, his salvation. When Mauro Larrea meets Soledad Montalvo, wife to a London wine merchant, she drags him into a most unexpected future, from the new Mexican republic to magnificent colonial Havana; and from the West Indies to the Andalusia of the 1860s, when the wine trade with England made the small city of Jerez legendary. A Vineyard in Andalusia tells of glories and defeats, of silver mines, family intrigues, vineyards, cellars, and splendid cities of faded grandeur. This is a story of courage before adversity, and of a destiny altered for good by the force of passion.
