Review:

"War, love and secrecy determine the lives of De Lope's characters. There are brutal scenes, moving passages and pages that are pure poetry. An unforgettable novel" -- Isabel Allende "Amid the current outpouring of Civil War fiction in Spain, the books of Manuel de Lope... should be top of interested readers' lists" * Independent * "Reading The Wrong Blood is like surrendering to a hypnotist... The style is a marvel of precision and patience, resulting in an atmosphere so saturated with suspense that I found myself wanting to read more slowly, even as I breathlessly anticipated the next paragraph. I've seldom read a more sublime and disturbing novel" -- Valerie Martin "The prosody of the original language has been retained in John Cullen's translation... mesmerizing... shattering... exquisite... A book that stays with you, inviting you to read it again" * Historical Novels Review * "elegantly poetic...the dream-like effect he achieves is immersive and moving" * Manuel de Lope *
