It reminded me of Mira Si Yo Te Querre, though only in that it involves a Spanish woman in the Sahara. The Duenas character is much more engaging, and the story is much more entertaining, even fascinating, although the ending was less-so to this reader. The author is an academic and this is evident in the well-researched, rich historical and geographic contexts she paints, and in which in which she grounds the life and times of Sira Quiroga and her fellow-travelers -matters that are often quite weak even with better-known and more-seasoned authors.
Not surprisingly, the novel is being presented as an Antena 3 television series in Spain this year. See the reference at IMDB: at [...], and at Antena 3: at [...]. Really looking forward to watching this on Amazon Prime!! Almost as much as I anticipate a next Duenas novel.
Gracias y felicitaciones, Profesora Duenas.
Don't be discouraged, though; even if you are not in any of this groups, terse, clean prose, well developed plot, in-depth research make this a very enjoyable novel by one of the great group of Spanish women writers of the current generation.
I will not go into the plot, and leave it to the enjoyment of the readers. My wife is readi, and enjoying the English translation.
It was originally written in Spanish but I don't doubt it will be equally amazing in English.
La narración es fluida, es emocionante, tiene ese toque de suspenso ideal. A mi parecer el final sí es concreto, cuando se refiere a lo que pudo ser, se refiere a lo que es este relato en la historia de la guerra, pero no en la historia de los personajes en sí, pero bueno, ese es mí parecer.
