In the late 19th century, Onofre Bouvila ventures from his parents' farm to work in Barcelona. By 1929, he is a arms smuggler who cannot forget his first love. ``Unfortunately, the characterization remains opaque, though the novel entertains and informs with its panorama of Catalan politics and social life,'' stated PW.
