Secret Lives - cover image Our August #BookOfTheMonth is a captivating tale of dark intrigue, a perfect read for a warm summer’s evening... Secret Lives by Barbara Greig.

The Gharsias hold a secret which means they can never be safe.

1530: Hernando Gharsia flees Spain with Luis, the traumatised grandson he is determined to raise within the traditions and faith of his ancestors. As he grows up, Luis must learn to navigate French and English society, politics and commerce with utmost discretion. In an historical saga spanning several tumultuous decades, the loyalty of friends is the only refuge from Europe’s religious and political turmoil.

From the vineyards of south-west France to the bustling port of Bridgwater, England, the remarkable story of Luis Gharsia unfolds as one of love, betrayal, resilience, and sacrifice.

Barbara Greig was born in Sunderland and lived in Roker until her family moved to Teesdale when she was eight. A voracious reader, she also discovered the joy of history at an early age. Barbara lives with her husband, Mike, on the edge of the North York Moors. She has a passion for hiking, and dancing, the perfect antidotes to long hours of historical research and writing, as well as for travel and, wherever possible, she walks in the footsteps of her characters.

Her two-part novel Secret Lives is our August #BookOfTheMonth. Both parts are available for just £7 each throughout August—why not get both and benefit from free delivery?
