it was amazing
Read in October, 2011

This is the story of a young woman who finds herself and love in Spain. It is tender and sweeping, taking in the sights and scents and sounds of village life in Spain during and after the era of Franco. Angela, the English-born heroine, has fled to the remote village and there she finds the love of her life, the goat-herder Domingo. She also finds the other villagers, who all have their own amazing and sometimes tragic stories.

I read ‘Domingo’s Angel’ in a sitting, and was utterly bewitched. Jenny Twist writes in a flowing, elegant style that draws the reader in completely. She shows the horrors and tragedies that these simple-living yet far from simple villagers endured during the Spanish civil war and after. It is a beautiful love story, reading at times almost like a fable, but it is also so much more – a celebration of life, of forgiveness and reconciliation, of the survival of the human spirit.

I look forward to reading Jenny Twist’s other books.
