HARPERCOLL
The Sands of Time is the tale of four nuns who are abruptly forced to flee the secure environment of their Spanish convent and face a hostile world they long ago abandoned. Suddenly these four women find themselves pawns in a violent struggle between the outlawed Basque underground movement, led by the charismatic Jaime Miró, and the Spanish army, under the command of the vengeful Colonel Ramón Acoca, who is bent on destroying all of them.

Megan, the orphan, would give anything to learn the identity of her parents. She fights against her overpowering attraction to the legendary and idealistic Jaime Miró.

Lucia, the fiery Sicilian beauty, is wanted by the police, but risks her future and a fortune to save a dying revolutionary.

Even the serenity of the convent cannot wipe out Gracielas nightmares of the past. How can she again face a world of carnal love?

It is Teresa whose confused conscience finally drives her to seek help from Colonel Ramón Acoca, a terrible mistake that will betray her friends.

The Sands of Time is an unforgettable adventure, told against the backdrop of the fascinating countryside of Spain. It combines history, romance, and suspense with the unexpected.
