Barcelona 1945: young Daniel Sempere is taken to a fabulous secret library called the Cemetery of Forgotten Books where he is told he must 'adopt' a single book, promising to care for it and keep it alive always. Entranced by his chosen book, The Shadow of the Wind by Julian Carax, Daniel begins a quest to find the truth about the life and death of its mysterious author. He starts to fall into a game of mirrors, reflecting strange discoveries about obsession and love, and how they are entwined within the shadow world of books.


Sal writes: We had to wait three years for this wonderful European bestseller to be translated from the Spanish into English. It has everything, a mystery and love story, a beautiful setting and who couldn't love a story that starts out with a young boy's visit to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books??? The city of Barcelona is also a star in this book and there are wonderful maps which really bring the story to life.
