A Garden Among Vineyards
Original title: Un jardín entre viñedos
Author: Carmen Santos
A passionate love story, betrayals and family secrets between the fun and intellectual Paris and the rural Spain in the 20s.
Little could Rodolfo Montero imagine his father’s unexpected and mysterious could oblige him to leave his vibrant life in Paris –the intellectuals and artists meeting point at the time– and go back home to take care of the family wine business in Cariñena (Aragon, Spain).
His wife Solange, madly in love, observes the grim House on the Hill ─the newlyweds home from now on. Her eyes, bright and full of curiosity, don’t escape Dionisio’s sight. Dionisio is Rodolfo’s elder brother, and a man defeated by life, a man who needs to find a reason not to drive himself deeper into despair.
A Garden Among Vineyards is a journey between the glamour and bohemian Paris of the Happy 1920s and the rural and rough Spain of that time. Stuck in a love triangle sprinkled with tragedy, the unforgettable three main characters ─Rodolfo, Dionisio and Solange─ glide along passion, love, loyalty and the most provoking of betrayals.
As powerful as good wine. We only remember the stories that leave a mark in our hearts. A Garden Among Vineyards is one of those novels meant to stay with the readers for a very long time.

«A Garden Among Vineyards is a novel to enjoy, quietly, and to get swept away by the images the author draws. A novel with solid characters, well defined, and a plot with a mystery that gets intertwined with the stories and feelings of each character.» Adivina Quién Lee
