Time and Places
The majority of The Rosario's story takes place in the present, with, as the Bookviral review described it, "... a blending of historical reference neatly blurring the lines between fact and fiction to create an overwhelming sense of authenticity and uncertainty as we hurtle towards a superb and rewarding denouement".
Throughout the powerful and entertaining chapters, the reader is whisked around Europe: from the isolation of Spain's majestic Catalonian Mountains and the bustling cities of Barcelona and Madrid, to the City of London and the sunny, rolling countryside of England's Devonshire towns and villages. Taking a deep breath from their luxury executive jet travels, the reader visits the major port of Hamburg in Northern Germany and the small town of Glücksburg, near the Danish border.
The Rosario's intertwining of fascinating, intriguing, emotional and heart-stopping happenings in each country, combine to give the reader a novel experience they will thoroughly enjoy and never forget.
