The Moon Sister
Tiggy's StoryBook - 2019
Tiggy D'Aplièse spends her days reveling in the raw beauty of the Scottish Highlands where she works at an animal sanctuary. But when the sanctuary is forced to close, she must take a job as a wildlife consultant on the vast and isolated estate of the enigmatic yet troubled Charlie Kinnaird. She has no idea the move will not only irrevocably alter her future but will also bring her face-to-face with her past. Living on the estate, she meets Chilly, an elderly Romani man who fled from Spain decades before. He tells Tiggy that not only does she possess a sixth sense inherited from her ancestors but it was foretold long ago that he would be the one to send her back home. Back in 1912, in the poor gitano community outside the city walls of Granada, Lucía Amaya Albaycín is born. Her mother, Maria, is devastated when Lucía is whisked away by her ambitious father at the tender age of ten to dance in the flamenco bars of Barcelona. And while Lucía perfects her passionate performance, eventually becoming the greatest flamenco dancer from her generation, political tensions in Spain boil over into civil war, forcing Lucía and her troupe of dancers to flee for their lives. As they travel through the Americas in search of a safe haven, Lucía's long-held dream of performing in New York seems within her grasp. But to pursue it, she must choose between her love for her career and the man she adores.
