Determined to maintain her secret, Richard keeps her locked away from prying eyes. Still, in order to ensure her well-being, he is forced to call upon the one woman who has always been able to melt the ice from his heart.<br /><br />Wishing to follow in her father鈥檚 footsteps, EVELYN PROCTEN has always tended to those in need. Despite social convention, the only future she can see for herself is that of a doctor.<br /><br />However, when Evelyn is called to Farnworth Manor to tend to Miss Davenport and her unborn child, she once again crosses paths with the young woman鈥檚 elder brother. A man who disapproves of her professional ambition. A man who has never looked at her twice. A man she鈥檚 loved from afar for many years.<br /><br />And then a kiss changes everything, sending sparks flying despite the snow surrounding Farnworth Manor. Heat lingers whenever they lie eyes upon one another, and slowly Evelyn comes to see that a tender heart beats in Richard鈥檚 chest, well-hidden behind his ice-cold facade.<br /><br /><hr><br /><br /><i>"To say I loved Oppressed & Empowered is an understatement.

<div></div><b>From the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Salt to the Sea</i> and <i>Between Shades of Gray</i> comes a gripping, unforgettable portrait of love, silence, and secrets amidst a Spanish dictatorship.</b><br /><br />Madrid, 1957. Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding a dark secret. Meanwhile, tourists and foreign businessmen flood into the country under the welcoming guise of sunshine and wine. Among them is eighteen-year-old Daniel Matheson, the son of a Texas oil tycoon, who arrives in Madrid with his parents hoping to connect with the country of his mother's birth through the lens of his camera. Photography--and fate--introduce him to Ana, whose family's interweaving obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War--as well as chilling definitions of fortune and fear. Daniel's photographs leave him with uncomfortable questions amidst shadows of danger. He is backed into a corner of decisions to protect those he loves. Lives and hearts collide, revealing an incredibly dark side to the sunny Spanish city.<div><br />Master storyteller Ruta Sepetys once again shines light into one of history's darkest corners in this epic, heart-wrenching novel about identity, unforgettable love, repercussions of war, and the hidden violence of silence--inspired by the true post-war struggles of Spain.</div><div></div><div>Includes vintage media interstitials, oral history commentary, photos, and more. </div>
