A Tale of Two Women
Tiggy D’Aplièse, the protagonist of the story, finds solace in the breathtaking natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands, where she works at a deer sanctuary. However, when circumstances force the sanctuary to close, Tiggy must leave and embark on a new adventure as a wildlife consultant on Charlie Kinnaird’s isolated estate. Little does she know that this move will not only reshape her future but also bring her face-to-face with her own past.
Within Charlie Kinnaird’s estate, Tiggy encounters Chilly, an elderly Romani man who fled Spain many decades ago. It is through Chilly that Tiggy discovers her unique lineage and ancestral sixth sense. Chilly reveals that he is the one who will guide Tiggy back to her true home, setting in motion a chain of events that will change Tiggy’s life forever.
The narrative then takes us back to 1912 in the impoverished Romani community outside Granada, where Lucía Amaya-Albaycin is born. Forcing her to leave her devastated mother at the tender age of ten, Lucía’s ambitious father takes her to Barcelona to dance in flamenco bars. Lucía’s passion for dancing grows, eventually leading her to become the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation. However, as tensions in Spain escalate into civil war, Lucía and her troupe must flee, searching for safety and a chance to pursue her dreams in New York.
