Los herederos de la tierra

Ildefonso Falcones

Set in medieval Barcelona, "Los herederos de la tierra" follows Hugo Llor, a young boy who dreams of becoming a shipbuilder. But when his mentor's family seeks revenge, Hugo struggles to survive in an unfair city. Forced to leave his neighborhood, he finds work with a Jewish man who teaches him about the world of wine and introduces him to his beautiful niece, Dolça. As they navigate their forbidden love, Hugo continues to fight for his dignity in a volatile feudal society. From the author of "La catedral del mar," this novel expertly recreates medieval Barcelona and its corrupt nobility.
