Review

By Suzie Hoy on 25 April 2014

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.
Great Read.

4.0 out of 5 starsUnderstanding the Civil War.

By Dr. Robert Balfour on 13 Mar. 2011

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

ByCalliopeon 6 November 2010

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.

 

 

About the Author

The Scottish novelist Joan Fallon, currently lives and works in the south of Spain. She writes both contemporary and historical fiction, but has also written a work of non-fiction which has proved the inspiration for at least two of her subsequent novels. Two aspects of Joan's life particularly influence her writing. The first is being a woman who grew up during the sixties and seventies, at a time when it was harder for a woman to gain recognition in a man's world. Consequently almost all her books have a strong female protagonist. The second influence is the fact that she has lived in Spain for the last twenty years. Spanish history and culture fascinate her and have provided some of the most exotic settings in her historical novels.
