Picaresque love story, THE BAND OF GYPSIES knits a haunting tale of youth and strife in Spain's Basque Country.
In the turbulent Basque city of Bilbao, Jaime Aragon, a young foreign intern is mesmerized by a colleague, a mysterious American named Allison Flynn. She is beautiful, alluring, and haunted by a horrid past. Allison hints of a genuine interest in Jaime, but her close friendship with a charismatic young Spaniard, Francisco, who happens to run a secret ETA terrorist cell at the university complicates matters. His instincts scream for him to stay away from her. Still, he cannot help himself.
Against the backdrop of Spanish fiestas and moonlit plazas sometimes marred by exploding Basque separatist bombs, Jaime pursues Allison. She is a complex woman; vulnerable, unpredictable, elusive. It is this very complexity that impels him toward her until he learns about a heart-rending secret that leaves his life in turmoil.
Featuring a multicultural cast including French student Simone, Brazilian Elena, Scandinavian Bjorn, Filipino Jaime, and Californian Allison, The Band of Gypsies introduces readers to a host of colorful characters whose lives are intertwined in an enchanting place.
