Publisher's Summary

An extraordinary tale of love, desire and forgiveness from the number-one best-selling author of Songs of love and War.

Sofia Solanas grows up on a beautiful ranch in the middle of the Argentine pampa. In a world of old-fashioned values, she carves out a place as a rebellious and passionate young woman. But eventually, her stubborn nature leads her to trouble....

When Sofia’s mother Anna discovers that Sofia has embarked on a forbidden love affair, she must act in order to save the family from shame. She sends Sofia to Europe - away from her friends and family and the man Sofia loves. But then, more than 20 years later, a family tragedy calls Sofia home, and she must discover if her passion still lives on....

Santa has done it again

Reduced to a blubbering wreck again at the end of this wonderful saga of family, loss and love. The characters spring to life and story line so true. I absolutely adored it, as I have with the others, books of hers I have read.

Not fond of the main character

I eventually enjoyed this book a little! unlike Santa's other novels, it took a long while for me to get into it. I just didn't like the main character Sophie and therfore she irritated me all through with her selfish me, me, me attitude. She was just a spoilt little madam ... and Juanita McMahon's Irish accent was appalling ... so all in all not the best.

Story spoilt by OTT South American accents

I couldn’t get past the characters speaking with OTT South American accents. They are in Argentina and thus speaking their own language so why do they all have heavy accents? Personally I’d rather hear them being narrated without accents at all. Sadly it ruined the story for me and I eventually had to give up listening. Sometimes it’s better to read the book!

Fabulous author!

I really can’t get enough of Santa Montefiore. Every book is so magical and simply transports me to another time and another place.

A lovely....

story with some great characters in and some good antics plus some good details within the book. The narrator was very good at using different voices for the characters.

Absolute rubbish

Unless you are interested in Polo this is the most boring story. Not worth listening to. Not finished.

Really Loved It!

The book was perfect. I absolutely loved it. I’m a really big Santa Montefiore fan, she has a wonderful way of telling a story. I don’t normally like to review books but this had everything I was looking for. Juanita McMahon is also a great narrator - she gets deep into character and I can really get immersed into the world of the book. As soon as I hear her voice I know I’m going to really enjoy the story. I highly recommend it.

My favourite book of all time...

Read it as a young girl, it's even better now that I have more worldly experience. Truly beautifully written, engaging and an emotional rollercoaster.
