Vivid and visual book. The story line that connects the past and present is predicable, but the beauty of the images, and the tragedies the Spanish Civil War brought to the families, communities, and the whole country is memorable. Worthwhile read, especially for those not closely familiar with events of the Spanish Civil war.

What an outstanding book--well written, descriptions so real that I could actually picture sceneries. Good history book of Civil War in Spain as well as story. Can't wait to go to Spain.

This is an excellent book. It gives you an insight into the civil war in Spain throught the eyes of a family living in Granada.
