From the Author:

Although the characters in the novel, "Spanish Lavender", are fictitious, the historical details are based on actual events that took place during the Spanish Civil War in February 1937 in the city of Malaga. 
      Like many people I had never heard about the massacre on the Malaga-Almeria road.  I knew of the bombing of Guernica, immortalised by Picasso; I had heard about the siege of Madrid and the battle of the Ebro, but nowhere had I read anything about innocent women and children being shelled by German and Spanish gunboats as they tried to flee to safety.  I had not heard that, even as late as the 1960s, they were discovering the bones of the victims along that stretch of road.  It was while I was writing an oral history on women in contemporary Spain that one of my interviewees started to tell me about what had happened.  Her own father had been caught up in the events of those terrible days.  I was so intrigued by what she had to tell me that I suspended my research on the book I was writing, and devoted myself to telling this story.
       I found that there were a number of first hand accounts written at that time, including a book by Gamel Woolsey, an American writer who lived in the area and a book by Arthur Koestler, a journalist, who visited Malaga in 1937 and was later imprisoned by the Nationalist forces.  All the historical details in the book have been carefully researched, even down to the state of the weather that month; I have tried to give an accurate picture of the events of February 1937 in Malaga and on the Malaga-Almeria road.  

From the Back Cover:

Together they make their escape from the war-torn city along the coast to Almeria. Amongst the death and carnage she falls in love with Juan, only to lose him shortly afterwards when he is badly wounded. Believing he is dead she returns to England with Alex, whom she later marries. Seventy years later Kate, Elizabeth´s granddaughter, is left a legacy following the death of her grandfather, a legacy that opens a Pandora´s box of secrets and lies which Kate can only unravel by returning to Spain.
