March 2017 Book of the Month.

A memorable, stirring tale, of bitter love and secrets that stalk impatiently through the pages. Two time frames, two women, two tales of heartbreak, can lessons be learned, can time forgive? There is a change in direction from the author’s earlier novels, existing fans will recognise the vibrant intensity of the writing, yet the haunting overtone will encourage a whole new audience. The Castillo Barbarossa sits brooding, dishevelled, with an almost vengeful intent as the two women bury themselves within it’s depths. As the story progresses Victoria Fox encourages thoughts and feelings to twist and warp in a fever-like dream. A spectre hovers over ‘The Silent Fountain’, ensuring a captivating and dramatically vivid read. ~ Liz Robinson

About the Author

Victoria Fox

Picked by Look magazine as one of their Shooting Stars when she published her first novel Hollywood Sinners and nominated by bestselling author Jane Costello, as one of the UK’s most exciting new writing talents, the last five years have seen Victoria Fox become one of the UK’s favourite authors of women’s fiction. The Santiago Sisters is Victoria’s sixth novel following Hollywood Sinners, Temptation Island, Wicked Ambition, Glittering Fortunes and Power Games. Victoria grew up in Northamptonshire and went to boarding school when she was 13 - where she learned what you can get up to when your parents aren’t around and avoided games lessons at all costs. Parts of The Santiago Sisters are based on her experience of attending Badminton School in Bristol. After a short career in commercial publishing in London Victoria now lives in Bristol with her husband.
