Kate Fordham fled to Spain to start a new life. Amid the sunlit streets of Granada and the earthly paradise of the Alhambra's gardens, towers and courtyards, she's left her past far behind. But fate is about to bring her face-to-face with her greatest fear. Five centuries ago, a message was hidden in the Alhambra's walls. There it has lain, undisturbed by the tides of history ? the fall of Granada, the expulsion of its last Sultan ? until Kate discovers it. Born of love in a time of desperation and danger, Kate's discovery will be the catalyst that changes her life.
