3.0 out of 5 stars Very little to do with Flamenco 25 Sep 2009
By Paul Magnussen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This book was originally published in 1931. It is not, as you may be hoping, an account of Flamenco as it was in the heyday of Manuel Torre and Manolo de Huelva: it's a romance set in the early 19th century, with only the most cursory connection to the title.

A couple of flamenco styles are mentioned in passing (including, anachronistically, bulerías, which weren't invented until much later); but that's about it.

Lady Eleanor's novels were very popular in her day, and several were filmed. I didn't think this one was particularly good.

Your mileage may vary.

Not a patch on Caravan, which I read every year. Reminds me of a Spain long gone and of our time here

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting 14 May 2013
By Al Kame - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I play flamenco guitar and enjoy reading older books about the subject. Sadly this book is not about flamenco but a novel about...??? good question, I think it is a 30's romance novel. The seller was quick in getting the book to me so that is a plus--and the price was good. However, I still paid money for a romance novel.
