The Time in BetweenThe Time in Between by María Dueñas

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Read by Zilah Mendoza
Length 21.8 hrs

This is the story of a young seamstress and her mother during the Spanish Civil War. After being engaged with a government clerk, Sira falls in love with a salesman and decides to fly with him to Morocco.

In the meantime, she met the father she never knew.

By returning to Spain, she then becomes an undercover agent for the Allies during World War II.

This is a story with a first-person narrator which makes the narrative quite long and too boring in my opinion. Besides, the heroine is very inconstant emotionally which makes the narrative goes up and down.

In summary. I have already read better books about the Spanish Civil War. Among them, I would recommend the fabulous book by André Malraux L’Espoir.

Unfortunately this book doesn’t bring any interesting issue about this theme.
