9780857522269: The Barefoot Queen

A romantic and thrilling historical adventure from the internationally bestselling author whose work Diana Gabaldon has called "Enthralling".

Spain, 1748. Caridad is a recently freed Cuban slave wandering the streets of Seville. Her master is dead and she has nowhere to go. When, by chance, she meets Milagros Carmona—a spellbinding, rebellious gypsy—the two women become inseparable. Caridad is swept into an exotic fringe society full of romance and art, passion and dancing.

But their way of life changes instantly when gypsies are declared outlaws by royal mandate and their world as a free people becomes perilous. The community is split up—some are imprisoned, some forced into hiding, all fearing for their lives. After a dangerous separation, Caridad and Milagros are reunited and join in the gypsies’ struggle for sovereignty against the widespread oppression. It’s a treacherous battle that cannot, and will not, be easily won.

From the bustle of Seville to the theatres of Madrid, The Barefoot Queen is an unforgettable historical fresco filled with characters that live, suffer, and fight for the lives of those they love, and for the freedom they can’t live without.

Review:

"Powerfully evokes the time and place."—Publishers Weekly

“Robust...Exciting...[This] multifaceted look at Gypsy life and morality is vivid and memorable.”—Booklist
 
“Falcones’ vivid portrait of gypsy culture—a proud, amoral and unabashedly sensual challenge to puritanical Spanish Catholicism—maintains interest as the plot twists on and on....Colorful...[With] a slam-bang finale.”—Kirkus 
Praise for Ildefonso Falcones’ Cathedral of the Sea

“Believable and enthralling...So beautifully structured that the last sixty pages detonate like a string of firecrackers.” — Diana Gabaldon, The Washington Post
 
 “Fantastic...The passion and heartache, as well as the grit and grime, of medieval Spain come alive.”—USA Today
 
An exciting, very readable adventure novel, enriched by realistic descriptions.”—The Independent (UK)
 
“[An] absorbing epic...Dizzying...Falcones’s rich portrait of medieval society is fascinating.”
Publishers Weekly

“With Cathedral of the Sea, Ildefonso Falcones...has become Spain’s new Dan Brown.”
El Mundo
