In a spellbinding narrative of sacrifice and survival, chaos and connection, four characters are caught up in the tides of history over three centuries and drawn to the sacred White Rock of San Blas off the coast of Mexico.
In 2020 an Englishwoman travels to give thanks for her child, a singer in 1969 runs from the law, from his rabid fans and an America burning with the fever of the Vietnam War, two Yoeme sisters are torn from their homeland at the start of the twentieth century, and in 1775 a Spanish Lieutenant prepares to set sail from the White Rock to continue the conquest of the Pacific coast.
The White Rock is a breathtaking novel about what happens when the stories we have lived by can no longer keep us safe.
"Profoundly intelligent and humane." (Guardian)

I’m a massive fan of Anna Hope and was so pleased to find this book entertaining and educational. I whizzed through it too fast.
Now I know a little about the indigenous people of Mexico and have a sense of the process of colonisation.
Thank you and more please.
