Seville, during Semena Santa celebrations. The last person William Sutherland wants to meet, on a ‘second honeymoon’ back to this mystical, magical place, on this most awe-inspiring of weeks, is… himself! Exactly thirty years younger and with his beautiful new Spanish bride. Especially as he didn’t want to go on holiday in the first place. Not with his business going downhill and his marriage on the rocks. But can this miraculous meeting of two eras work wonders with his and Luisa’s stale marriage? Or will it jeopardise everything they have ever loved?
