To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

The Sleeping Voice

The Sleeping Voice - Dulce Chacón Glad to give this 5 stars as I can still hear their voices in my mind. It is specially affecting to read this now with the Euro in crisis and capitalism and the banking community winding up the pressure on Spain. The Spanish civil war was a terrible time but this book paints a distressing (and true) picture of the early years of Franco's Spain, the repression and hunger Spaniards endured during the second world war and afterwards.
