About this item

"Packed with engaging characters, flawlessly researched, and breathlessly paced" (Booklist, starred review)—the internationally bestselling novel about a seamstress who becomes an undercover spy for the British Secret Service during World War II.

At age twelve, Sira Quiroga swept the atelier floors. By fourteen, she began her apprenticeship as a seamstress, and within a few years was able to stitch fine fabric into breathtaking creations. Now with the Spanish civil war brewing in Madrid, Sira says goodbye to her mother and follows her lover to Morocco, but soon finds herself abandoned, penniless, and heartbroken. Sira turns to her gift for creating exquisite clothes. As the great powers are pulled into a second world war, Sira returns to Madrid, where she assumes a new identity to embark upon a dangerous undertaking: becoming embroiled in the half-lit world of espionage and political conspiracy, rife with love, intrigue, and betrayal.

A runaway bestseller across Europe, The Time in Between is one of those rare, richly textured novels that enthralls down to the last page. María Dueñas’s debut reminds us how it feels to be swept away by the skill of a masterful storyteller.
