The Snow Gypsy
The Snow Gypsy | Lindsay Jayne Ashford
15 posts | 9 read | 3 reading | 58 to read
From the bestselling author of The Woman on the Orient Express comes a haunting novel of two women--one determined to uncover the past and the other determined to escape it. At the close of World War II, London is in ruins and Rose Daniel isn't at peace. Eight years ago, her brother disappeared while fighting alongside Gypsy partisans in Spain. From his letters, Rose has just two clues to his whereabouts--his descriptions of the spectacular south slopes of the Sierra Nevada and his love for a woman who was carrying his child. In Spain, it has been eight years since Lola Aragon's family was massacred. Eight years since she rescued a newborn girl from the arms of her dying mother and ran for her life. She has always believed that nothing could make her return...until a plea for help comes from a desperate stranger. Now, Rose, Lola, and the child set out on a journey from the wild marshes of the Camargue to the dazzling peaks of Spain's ancient mountain communities. As they come face-to-face with war's darkest truths, their lives will be changed forever by memories, secrets, and friendships.

I enjoyed this kindle first book about a veterinarian from England who travels through France and Spain to try to find out the fate of her brother who went missing during WWII. She has close ties to gypsies, and befriends a flamenco dancer at a festival, traveling with her to Granada. This is some good historical fiction!

Read this one recently and loved it. Set in Spain not long after the Civil War in the world of gypsies and flamenco, Lola is definitely a #dancingqueen. 💃

This is a beautifully told story about gypsies in post-civil war Spain and a Jewish woman‘s attempt to find family in this war-torn country. The characters are so well-described, being so fresh from discord that split towns that no one knows whom to trust. This feels so real, what it must have been like so immediately after the tragic event.

Soubhiville I‘m glad you “picked” this! I think I‘ll add it to my March TBR. 😊 4y

Reading slump update... Work has been hellish, and now I‘m on the road to do trainings but fielding countless calls from clients. Fortunately I love my clients, but I‘m bone-tired. And I still have insomnia so on the bright side, at least I have this time to start reading again. I‘m getting over my slump and partly because this book is so very good. About gypsies in post Spanish Civil War. Gorgeous storytelling.

catiewithac I‘ve been in a reading slump, too. I‘m glad you found a book friend! 4y
Texreader @catiewithac Don‘t you just hate it when it happens? Hope you “recover” soon! 4y
Cathythoughts What an amazing splash of red on that cover ... dramatic ♥️👍🏻 4y
Texreader @Cathythoughts It‘s a gorgeous cover. I actually hadn‘t thought about it till your comment, I finally realized it depicts a main character in the story. 4y
Soubhiville I need to get to this one soon! I‘m glad to hear you‘re enjoying it! I hope you get some decent sleep soon. 4y

These were my Amazon First Reads picks for the month. They both look so good!

Emiller I chose these 2 also!! 4y
JazzFeathers That Snow Gipsy cover would be enough to buy the book for me. 4y
booksandsympathy @JazzFeathers It was enough to get me to choose it. Lol. I love flamenco, so I didn't even read the description before selecting it. I read the description afterwards and thought it sounded good, thankfully. 4y

This was in my inbox this morning. Kindle First has changed its name to First Reads, and this month they‘re offering two books out of the six choices! If you‘re a First Reads subscriber they‘re $1.99 each. If you‘re a Prime member they‘re free!

I honestly don‘t remember how I became a First Reads subscriber, I think Amazon sent me an email offer, but I‘m pretty sure it‘s free.

Don‘t know if this is US only.

jenniferajanes These are the books I chose too! Happy reading! 📚 4y
Soubhiville @jenniferajanes thanks, you too! The cover of The Snow Gypsy grabbed me! 4y
Laura317 In having trouble choosing a second one. I picked Snow Gypsy. Might go with your pick. 4y
