Set in Madrid, Tetuán, and Lisbon before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War
through the Second World War, THE TIME IN BETWEEN follows the life of Sira
Quiroga. Born a poor seamstress in Madrid, Sira—after being abandoned in
Tangiers by her lover—forges a new identity and becomes the most sought-after
couturiere in North Africa, catering to the idle rich and the wealthy wives of
high ranking officials. Sira dreams only of paying off her debts and rescuing
her mother from war-torn Madrid, but soon finds herself embroiled in a world
of spies and counterspies. Her profession puts her in a perfect position to
garner classified intelligence, and then pass it along to the British Secret
Service through Morse Code secretly stitched into the patterns of her haute
couture dresses.
THE TIME IN BETWEEN sold 2.5 million copies in Spain, and is being
published for the first time in English in the United States on November 8,
2011 by Atria Books.
