An international bestseller and winner of Spain’s richest literary prize, the Premio Planeta, All This I Will Give to You keeps you at the edge of your seat while also delving deep into themes of family, love, and inheritance. In a place steeped in tradition, facing a family with deeply rooted beliefs, Manuel discovers that logic alone won’t do to tie together all the loose ends surrounding Álvaro’s death. It’s Manuel’s sensitivity—and his intimate connection to the victim—that puts him on track to find out what really happened to his one true love, along with the unlikely friendships he forges with an ex-cop and a local priest. But now he can’t trust anything Álvaro ever told him, and he can’t stay out of the way and let tradition extinguish all traces of the man he thought he knew.
Manuel’s passion to find out what happened to his one true love is so deeply moving that I found myself aching to continue reading long after I had turned the last page, enjoying the company of this intelligent, warm person who sees through the veils of courage and tenacity we use to conceal our inner lives.
