This good condition paperback was given to me by my sister-in-law C for bookcrossing.

It tells the story of Sonia and Maggie who go on holiday together to Granada to dance. They learn the extraordinary tale of Spain's civil war as well as the salsa and flamenco.

I started to read this book, in fact I read over 100 pages before giving up with it. I felt it was well-written but it just didn't keep my interest. However I hope it will go on to find another reader who will enjoy it.

This book was given to my friend and fellow bookcrosser Snoopy56 when we met today for Lunch and chat.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

This was a perfect holiday read. The contrast between the two main themes of the book - love of dancing and the horrors of the Spanish Civil war was very stark. There were some aspects of the civil war that I was unaware of such as the establishment of very basic refugee camps over the border in France and the evacuation of large numbers of children to the UK where they were resettled in small groups around the country. Some returned to Spain after the war but those who had neither family or homes to return to ended up staying in England.
