really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

I enjoyed this book, which is action-packed (Spanish Civil War/Guernica/WWII/etc.) yet strangely also somewhat leisurely. Ilana Davita's character unfolds slowly, as we see her start to find an identity in a confusing world, and it's a journey of great interest. The book's really sad, but the combination of historical material (I never had wondered about how American communists, dedicated anti-fascists all, would take the Hitler/Stalin non-aggression pact) and character development made it worthwhile.
