About Book

Astrid and Lola, sisters in exile in Paris, are inextricably linked to the separatist struggle in their native Basque country. They await the release from prison of Lola's lover Mikel, who has served twenty years for terrorist acts. But Mikel vanishes on release, sending both sisters on an increasingly frantic search that brings up their long-buried past. Full of sustained menace, of reluctant yet addictive relationships, Castro's Dream is a story of love and the forces that are its undoing.
