This is the story of Adam, Henry, Elena – and the ghost of Carlos.

Henry and Elena have it all – two lovely children, a beautiful home, a content marriage – until he loses everything on a foolish investment and she lets the ghosts of her past seep into their relationship.

Meeting Adam, her former lover, at a college reunion, Elena suddenly finds herself caught up in a storm of memories of a distant Spanish summer, unearthing questions about a precious relationship that was bitterly wrenched apart. It is a meeting that forces her to confront the decisions she has made and the disintegration of her hopes of what her life would be.

But while Elena reconciles herself to what really happened all those years ago, Henry is at home struggling with a crisis of his own …

Seven Nights in Zaragoza is a spellbinding novel of secrets revealed, of passions revived, of innocence lost – and of what simmers just beneath the surface of ‘ordinary’ lives.
