KIRKUS REVIEW

The rugged rock- Gibraltar- and the softer contours of the Mediteranean shade the dalliances- and mesalliances- of the British Saracens and their Spanish wives. For Lorna, who had left her English husband, Roderick Saracen, and children- to return to Spain, is now asked to intercede for young Nicholas Saracen in his courtship of Carmela- and sees her son for the first time in many years. He is joined at her house by his brother; they are followed by their father- obdurate and disapproving- and while both families frown on the match between Nicholas and Carmela- it also serves to reunite Lorna and Roderick... For a siesta rather than a fiesta, a soothing diversion.
