A 15 year-old,village girl joins the Republican side along with her brother. She returns pregnant to a village and family bitterly divided over the brutal war. The book also deals with the Francoist atrocities on Mallorca in which the Catholic Church colluded.
The account, translated, is a sobering and effective one . It's focus is one of the most vicious and brutal wars of the twentieth century.
