5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous look at a bicultural life in Spain, 14 Feb. 2000
By A Customer
This is an excellent look at what it is like to be in a bicultural environment but more importantly a perceptive look at the changes in recent Spanish history and how it affected (and is affecting) so-called 'ordinary' women. Lucia Graves writes gently and humbly but always interestingly. If you can read Spanish, you should also try her novel La casa de la memoria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating window on fascist Spain, 19 Oct. 2011
This review is from: A Woman Unknown: Voices from a Spanish Life (Paperback)
This book builds a troubling, fascinating picture of Spain under Franco's dictatorship and the power of the conservative Catholic church through stories about the lives of individual women. Wonderfully written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Womens stories in Spanish 20th Century turmoil and their uplifting survival, 1 April 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is beautifully crafted with the author's own experiences of growing up in an unspoilt Majorca and within this, the weaving of the eternal story of womens' coping and survival, during times of great change. The book is full of evocative descriptions and perhaps each womens passage through life. No matter where their life path is centered. I found the book encouraged me to ponder my own life and the many femail roles we are caught up in.

I truely recommend this book, for it's literary beauty and also it's deeper story.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought this an excellent book and it was very well written, 15 Aug. 2014

This review is from: A Woman Unknown: Voices from a Spanish Life (Paperback)
I thought this an excellent book and it was very well written. I enjoyed reading it and found it very interesting, it kept my attention all the time. As I came to live in the Canaries in 1972 Lucia Graves brought back many memories of Spain during those early years. I would recommend my friends to read this colourful account of life in Spain.
