NCLA Review -This historical novel of the 1930’s Spanish Civil War begins with bombing victims and a budding romance. The story develops into a spy thriller as priceless Spanish gold, desperately needed to finance the freedom fighters, has been stolen. Sophie, the artist heroine, is sucked into the search. Through her faith Sophie finds strength despite her fears. The storyline is somewhat disjointed; a kaleidoscope of poor Spanish peasants and idealistic American volunteers fighting for Spanish freedom against Franco’s fascists. A Nazi bomber pilot, a Catholic priest, wealthy Spanish landowners, and Lipizzaner horses fill in the background for this picture of a complex conflict. The conditions of the poor and the ideologies behind the war are depicted in ways which help the reader understand that the causes of war are often not black and white. The practical, sustaining power of faith in God in dark times runs through the picture like a thread of gold. Rating: 3—MS ( )
