This was an interesting look at gender power politics in Spanish society in the 1910s and 1920s, but if the story was reduced to the basic order of events, (beginning with "falls in love with guy called Richard, moves to another country, gets married to someone else..." etc,) it was remarkably similar to Sara Dane. The details, setting, tone, first person narration and characters were quite different, but that basic structure / order of events was.
It was a reasonable read - historically very interesting - but far from being one of my favourites of hers. (I'll admit by the end of it, I was over the main character being in love with someone she actually barely knew.) ( )

Die Irische See brandete mit der noch ungebändigten Wildheit der vorhergegangenen Sturmnacht gegen die Küste, und der Reiter kam auf mich zu wie das Donnern des Meeres.
