Does a man fall in love with a country first or the woman he finds there? And which love is finally the greatest? In this elegant account of his falling for the Spanish woman he married 30 years ago, Lamar Herrin opens his heart, his natural skepticism, and an American's awe of history to a complex nation that is both rich in tradition and astoundingly foreign. Portraying himself as a Quixote in love with Romance, Herrin allows us to watch as he struggles to win the woman who will finally open her arms to him in a world where the Church and Bureaucracy are unwilling to. By turns comic and moving -- and always lyrical -- there are beauty and good heart enough in this eloquent book for travelers and lovers alike.
