Jenny Twist’s Domingo’s Angel is a remarkable tale on all accounts. She has a talent for narrating a story within a story with so much ease. Her characters are so depthful and vivid that while reading I felt like I was living in Amendillas as one of their neighbors. Don’t be fooled by the rosy narrative found at the beginning, for each character has a dark past they must come in terms with.

The book is culturally enriching in an interesting fashion and the switching perspectives between characters allow the reader a chance to sympathize with all of them. Hope and dreams are deeply imbedded in this story amongst the detrimental living conditions the characters had to live through due to Dictator Franco’s war. The unbreakable bond the strong community has also shines through, paving the way for the realistic hope of a brighter tomorrow without the overcast murkiness of the past.
