A master at articulating for the reader the heart and soul of her characters, the author once again delivers the magic. The story is told to her granddaughter as remembered. In 1930’s New York, Marian is estranged from her wealthy Irish Catholic family. Looking to escape from their abhorrent values, she marries her dead gay brother’s lover and sails off to volunteer in The Spanish Civil War. The story brims with emotion and thoughtfulness, while marching the characters forward relentlessly in the sweep of history until the circle closes. Magnificent! ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
