The Sardana Series by Ray Harwood
“An emotive rites of passage novel set along the gorgeous Catalan coastline” – Miriam Pereira
Last Sardana and Sardana Encore are the first two books in a six part Sardana series.
Last Sardana begins the story of a mother, Maria Martinez, and 12-year-old son Pedro, with modest beginnings in Rosas, a Spanish Costa Brava fishing village. Set in the fifties, Maria was widowed by a tragic disaster at sea. Together they uproot south to be under the wing of her brother-in-law, who is developing an hotel on the Martinez family land.
Sardana Encore welcomes the reader back as the thriving Martinez family hotel reaches the end of it’s first season and Pedro – now known as Peter – prepares to begin his architecture studies in London.
Ray intends that Blesma, The Limbless Veterans, a charity which helps all serving and ex-Service men and women who have lost limbs, or lost the use of limbs or eyes, will benefit through publications.
“Ray Harwood’s strengths lie in characterisation and visualisation of the scenes in which his characters are going to blossom and come forth, enabling him to tell his story.” – Paul Norman
