What would you do if everything dear to you was lost in one terrifying moment?
Diego Vargas is a Spanish Gypsy from the Southside of Seville. Just turned nineteen, he is recently married, madly in love, expecting his first child, and completely unaware that his life is about to come crashing down around him. On a dark road beside a sweetly-scented orange grove, Diego’s life takes a tragic turn. He loses the woman he loves in a tragedy that could have been prevented–if the Spaniard he pleaded with for help had not been a troubled racist.
For months after the tragedy, Diego lives lost. But then a chance encounter with a man from India offers him the promise of change.
A devastating loss.
A dangerous obsession.
From the depths of darkness, Diego must find the courage to face death, the strength to survive it, and the power to hold onto his humanity while both his mind and his will scream against it.
City of Sorrows is a novel about what controls us, and the choices we must make to be free.
