This book is compulsive reading. I found it hard to put down. Written with compassion and with true empathy with the subject. I would advise every female living in Spain to read this book. I will definitely read more books by this author.

A wonderful inspiring book about innocent people being drawn into the Spanish Civil War with dramatic outcomes for the characters within the book.
It also gave me lots of information I was unaware of during the Spanish Civil War really interesting.
4.0 out of 5 starsUnderstanding the Civil War.

Most of us are too young to have been alive during the Spanish Civil War, but if you want to understand what some of the spanish women went through, this book will help. Have you ever wondered why some elderly spanish women are still illiterate (analfabeto)? Find out what they went through under Franco. These stories still need to be heard.
5.0 out of 5 starsVery good read

Daughters of Spain is a finely crafted account of a broad selection of Spanish womens' experiences during the Civil War, life under General Franco and their fight for emancipation. It's been told through a series of interviews, conducted and translated by the author; interspersed with historical data, this book is perceptive and a pleasure to read.
