Praise For This Book

"There's no one better than Cleeton at intertwining tales of mothers and daughters with war and revolution... a riveting tale." -Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Diamond Eye

"Cleeton is a master at weaving together stories across dual timelines, and this is no exception. The novel pulses with her signature blend of intrigue, betrayal, and the redemptive power of unleashing family secrets." -Entertainment Weekly

"Cleeton vividly describes Barcelona through the eyes of her protagonists; the city, and its mixture of art and tragedy, is the perfect backdrop for Alicia's struggle and Isabel's soul-searching.... The Perez women display their strength in very different ways, and Cleeton celebrates each for their fortitude...[and] sensitively explores the multiple factors that affect her characters' decisions. Their lives are shaped not only by political events at home and abroad, but by their family's expectations and their precarious social status as immigrants to the U.S. Full of rich historical detail and vibrant characters, Our Last Days in Barcelona stands on its own, but also gives readers another glimpse into the continuing story of the Perez family." -Shelf Awareness

"Cleeton weaves the three women's stories together to create another charming historical novel about strong women facing adversity in life and love, who are passionately loyal to family and forever yearning for their lost homeland." -Booklist

"Cleeton's devoted fans as well as readers new to her work will be captivated by this original and evocative story of love, loyalty, betrayal and redemption." -Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman With the Blue Star

"A profoundly moving story about sacrifices made in the name of family and legacy, and the lasting repercussions of losing one's homeland. Utterly captivating." -Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Magnolia Palace

"Since her bestselling debut, Next Year In Havana, Chanel Cleeton has been a go-to for historical fiction that delivers complex female characters and gripping family drama. ... Cleeton is a master at weaving storylines brimming with intrigue and the prevailing power of love." -Oprah Daily

"This novel of family, loss, and war is not only an extraordinary journey through some of the 20th century's most pivotal struggles, but also an epic tale of what can happen when we have the courage to face who we really are-perhaps the most revolutionary thought of all. I loved it." -Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names
