The Barefoot Queen Paperback



1748, Seville: Caridad, a recently freed Cuban slave, wanders the streets of the city.

Her master is dead and she has nowhere to go. When she meets Milagro Carmona - a young, rebellious gypsy - the two women are instantly inseparable.

Milagros introduces Caridad to the gypsy community, an exotic fringe society that will soon bring them love and change their life forever. From the tumultuous bustle of 18th-century Seville to the theatres of Madrid, THE BAREFOOT QUEEN takes us into the murky world of tobacco smuggling and ther persecution of the gypsies.

Showing us the birth of Flamenco, it is a historical fresco filled with characters that live, love, fight and suffer for what they believe.
