"A work of powerful literature that is sure to leave your spirit lifted and your heart broken," Tony Healey, author of Far From Home. The Girl From Tenerife is a beautiful story about love, passion, and loss. It is a haunting tribute to the older generation of writers who influenced the author, his love of the craft, and makes his case for the right to stand among them. It is a novel about searching for your one true love. About what happens both when you find them and when you lose them. It's a novel about the craft of writing. About what it means to write something that truly matters. Something that will change the status quo. In this stunning new novel, international best-selling author Bernard Schaffer has taken himself away from genre fiction and accomplished something truly unique. He has created a piece of literary art.
