I will follow in your footsteps
by Care Santos
By the author of Half-Life (Nadal Prize 2017), a new novel about family relationships that reflects on the ways a secret from the past can make our future come tumbling down.
Reina receives an unexpected call from the mayor of a small village in the Pyrenees. Renovation work on the cemetery has forced them to open up some of the more neglected tombs, among them her father’s. The mayor begs her to do something about his remains and invites her to a solemn ceremony.
There is, in addition, a delicate matter he would like to speak to her about, one far from easy to discuss: the discover of another body next to her father’s. Surprised, Reina has no idea who it could be; she knows next to nothing about the man except that he killed himself forty-five years ago, and her mother tried her entire life to conceal it. Against her will, she goes to the village to put things in order.
A journey that will take Reina to a tiny town in the heart of Catalonia, but also to a faraway past to the thirtys when her father was a young man in love.
