La prosa de Josefina R. Aldecoa es elegante porque narra desde el interior, desde las sensaciones, los sentimientos, las vivencias. Lejos de describirnos la realidad, nos la filtra a través de los ojos de sus protagonistas, esas mujeres a veces valientes, en ocasiones perdidas pero siempre reales, superando el mundo que las toca vivir. En Mujeres de negro nos las encontraremos envueltas en el viejo conflicto de las dos Españas, en esta ocasión en la guerra civil y la posguerra y, como no podría ...more

Este mes voy sobrado, y de momento voy a contar como 1 libro lo que son 3, si luego me fallan las cuentas lo cambio y punto, que para eso las reglas las pongo yo y ya veremos hasta donde llego con Libros 2005-2006. 12 libros al año.


Los libros en cuestión son la trilogía de lectura separada, pero totalmente conectados, constituida por Historia de una maestra, Mujeres de negro y La fuerza del destino, a las que voy a puntuar con 4 estrellas.

Easy to read in Spanish. But the story is very slow moving. You empathize with the feelings of those who were not on the front in the Spanish Civil War, those who led lonely lives after the defeat of the Republicans. Seen from the point of view of a young girl growing up in Spain and then in Mexico.

This is the story of a mother and daughter who fled the Spanish Civil War and lived as exiles in Mexico. Interesting, sometimes moving first person narrative, and I would say accessible to Spanish-as-a-second-language readers.
