Event Details

When Berta Isla was a schoolgirl, she decided she would marry Tomas Nevinson, the dashing half-Spanish, half-English boy in her class with an extraordinary gift for languages. But when Tomas returns to Madrid from his studies at Oxford, he is a changed man. Unbeknownst to her, he has been approached by an agent from the British intelligence services, and he has unwittingly set in motion events that will derail forever the life they had planned. With peerless insight into the most shadowed corners of the human soul, Marias plunges the reader into the growing chasm between Berta and Tomas and the decisions that irreversibly change the course of the couple's fate. Berta Isla is a novel of love and truth, fear and secrecy, buried identities, and the destinies we bring upon ourselves.

Join Marcella Trevino for a discussion of acclaimed mysteries, and enjoy coffee and muffins. Space limited, enrollment recommended.
