A father comes to terms with his mortality and secrets in a heartrending novel of family and forgiveness from the New York Times bestselling author of The Hundred-Foot Journey. It is a time of reckoning for José María Álvarez, an aristocratic Spanish banker living in a Swiss village with his American wife. Nearing the end of a long and tumultuous life, he’s overcome by hallucinatory memories of the past. Among his most cherished memories are those of his boyhood in 1950s Franco-era Spain and the bucolic afternoons he spent salmon fishing on the Sella River with his father, uncle, and much-loved younger brother. But these fond reveries are soon eclipsed by something greater. José’s regrets and dark family secrets are flooding back, as is the devastating tragedy that drove José into exile and makes him bear the burden of a soul-deep guilt. Now, as his three estranged sons return to their father’s side, José hopes to outpace death long enough to finally put his house in order and exorcise its demons. Only in his quest for redemption can José begin to understand the meaning of his life—and what his legacy has meant to others.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Thom Rivera gives this novel an unforgettable performance as he captures the diminishing spirit and dying body of José María lvarez. Rivera’s diction is spot-on as he delivers Spanish, American, Swiss, and Indian accents. He powerfully conveys the tortured thoughts of the flawed and complex private banker at the center of this compelling work as he re-creates the aristocrat’s life story…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
