I love books that teach about periods in history, and this novel was no disappointment as it depicted Spain and other parts of Europe after the Spanish Civil War with realistic clarity. I found the main character, Brett, to be completely sympathetic, and I was afraid for him as he was pulled further and further into danger when a feeling of obligation puts him in the position of spy for the British Secret Service. Love and intrigue abound, and I could not put this one down. My book club shared Spanish Tapas at my house as we discussed our enjoyment of this book.
I highly recommend this novel.
