Publisher's Summary

After fleeing from an abusive husband accused of murder, Celia Merrill becomes embroiled in a Spanish Civil War.

Celia's two sons march under opposing banners, whilst her twin daughters take different paths; one to the Catholic Church and the other to the battlefields. And in the shadow of war, a sinister villain from the past resurfaces with the sole purpose of destroying the entire family.

    "AWFUL READER"
    Any additional comments?

    This book desperately needed a good editor, and a good narrator. The text was scattered with mis-used words and appalling mispronunciations. (arthuritis!). The narrator chose to use cheeping, little girly voices which grated on the nerves. All attempts at regional accents were laughable. I gave up half way through - not really having any interest in what happened to the protagonists.<br/>The story might have been passable with a different writer and different narrator.

    "Well told story with great narrator."

    The author captures the human cost of the civil war and shows that there are no winners - except perhaps those who find the courage to carry on with their lives in spite of the brutality and their own miscalculation.

    "couldn't read with my history"

    it isn't that it was bad but having had happen things very similar to the very first three chapters I could get no further.
