Synopsis

 

Waiting anxiously for the release from prison of her one-time lover, Lola sits in her apartment, willing the phone to ring with some word from the convicted Basque terrorist, Mikel. Across the busy Paris streets her elder sister, Astrid, prepares for another day of surgery at the hospital and the regular encounter with her own demons. Mikel returns to freedom but not to the young girl he seduced some twenty years before; rather, his plans involve Astrid and a trip back to the Basque country - not, this time, to take up the cause, but to avoid the attention and intentions of Txema, his former friend and fellow ETA activist, who has good reason to silence Mikel. Meanwhile, Lola and Astrid make their separate ways, for different reasons, back to northern Spain in search of Mikel. What ensues will alter the course of their lives forever. Engagingly written, with a portraitist's eye for character and relationship, Lucy Wadham's second novel moves along with the pace and passion of a thriller coupled with the artistry of literary fiction. Following the acclaim for her first novel, Lost, Castro's Dream will surely see Lucy Wadham recognised as one of the most tremendously gifted storytellers of her generation.
