Publisher Comments:

“Boling threads his way through the stories of his many characters with humor, compassion and rich details of Basque tradition…Moving.”—Washington Post Book World

In 1935, Miguel Navarro finds himself on the wrong side of the Spanish Nationalists, so he flees to Guernica, the most ancient town of the Basque region. In the midst of this idyllic, isolated bastion of democratic values, Miguel finds more than a new life—he finds a love that not even war, tragedy or death can destroy.

The bombing of Guernica was a devastating experiment in total warfare by the German Luftwaffe in the run-up to World War II . For the Basques, it was an attack on the soul of their ancient nation. History and fiction merge seamlessly in this beautiful novel about the resilience of family, love, and tradition in the face of hardship.

Wendy in Port Townsend, September 26, 2011 (view all comments by Wendy in Port Townsend)
This is a beautiful book with a variety of awesome characters and a spellbinding plot woven around the bombing of Guernica. It well deserves its 2009 award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association. The first half of the book establishes an idyllic setting, filled with lovely details about the trees, plants, farms, food, and celebrations of the Basque Country, and anticipation of the destruction. The second half moves quickly, and surprisingly includes joy and humor as well as the anticipated pain and devastation. A recent reading of Mark Kurlansky's "A Basque History of the World" enhanced my cultural appreciation of "Guernica," and the next thing I want to do is find a large image of Picasso's mural to study.
