Letters, Deaths and Dialogue – A Novel of The Spanish Civil War

What happened in the Spanish village of Ungria in 1939? For more than half a century this is a question that has haunted historians, journalists and, particularly, the people of Ungria themselves – those few who survived.

Letters, Deaths and Dialogue is a powerful and disturbing novel, it follows the lives of several leading protagonists – two men and a woman caught inexorably in a moving trinity of love during the bloody Spanish Civil War. The events unfold through a series of letters the two men are compelled to write to each other almost sixty years later, and also through the pages of the remarkable diary of Father Emanual Hortez, the parish priest at Ungria during the war, whose words breathe life into the people of the village.
