The Time in Between by Maria Duenas

January 12, 2012

Many of us here at Just the Right Book have recently enjoyed The Time in Between by Maria Duenas. This is the perfect kind of novel to sink your teeth into this time of year–it’s long (624 pages), has a strong, likable protagonist who you’ll root for, and an engaging, compelling story–set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War and then World War II. The sense of time and place is vivid–you’ll be transported to Spain, Morocco, and Tunisia in the 1930s and 40s and immersed in the culture, the landscape, and the fashions of the time. The Time in Between is the author’s debut novel, a bestseller in Spain, and was translated from Spanish.
