REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
Paloma Batton is a dedicated ballet dancer, training to follow in her mother’s footsteps at the Paris Opera Ballet. When a pair of golden earrings are mysteriously delivered to her, she begins to uncover the past of her family, who fled Barcelona after the Civil War, and explores her fascination with La Rusa, a popular and political flamenco dancer during the war. A tangled and complicated saga, Golden Earrings cleverly weaves a passionate, volatile and tragic story through various first person narratives and different generations of women leading up to Paloma’s current day perspective. Golden Earrings is captivating – from the political charged pre-war time, to the dangerous Civil War, to the rebuilding and scarred era that follows.
