At once an epic family drama and a sweeping love story that spans both an ocean and a generation, Palm Trees in the Snow is an emotionally gripping and historically vivid tale of the secrets that can destroy a family - and the bonds that endure.
When Clarence of Rabaltué discovers a series of old letters from her father's past, she begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about her once-noble family. Her father and his brother worked in the colony of Fernando Po, but these letters tell a different story than the tales of life in Africa that made it to the dinner table. Clarence has no idea what really went on during their time at the cocoa plantations - or why no one in her family has ever returned to the island in all the years since. But the letters suggest that a great love story is buried beneath the years of silence.
Setting out from her home in Spain's snowy mountains, Clarence makes the same journey across the sea that her uncle and father traveled before her. There, she unlocks the painful secrets her family has hidden in the rich African soil. But what she discovers may also be the key to awakening her own listless heart.

If you love the movie then the book will take your
This is my favorite movie. I can watch it back to back to back. The book brought so much more. Yes, the story is a little different, but not too far off. A lot of research went into this and makes it feel more real.
They both do an amazing job but I love Kilian in the book and in the movie so when Malcolm read I was more excited.
You must read this if you love historical romance fiction. I say watch the movie on Netflix first then read the book!
