"It is the summer of 1936, in the early months of an agonizing civil war that promises to engulf Spain and shake the world. In a prison in the pilgrim city of Santiago de Compostela, an artist sketches the famous Portico da Gloria using a carpenter's pencil. But instead of reproducing the sculptured faces of the prophets and elders, he draws the faces of his fellow Republican prisoners. Many years later in post-Franco Spain, a survivor of that period, Doctor Daniel da Barca, returns from exile to his native Galicia, and the threads of the past begin to be woven together."--Http://www.powells.com
