I love the study of history!
I majored in European history in one of my Uni degrees, fascinated by different cultures, unique events and the politics of governments in the past. I have a special interest in the World Wars but I never studied the Spanish Civil War. Now I don't need to as I get two of my great loves in one series - history and fiction - I couldn't ask for more!!
Tricia's meticulous attention to detail and fascinating characters create a series that will engage, educate and excite you!
Don't miss A Valley of Betrayal, A Shadow of Treason before you read A Whisper of Freedom:~
About the book:
Battles heat up…not only those being waged by the soldiers on both sides fighting for Spain, but in the hearts and minds of the men and women who must sacrifice more than their dreams to save the lives of their loved ones.
In this meticulously researched novel, brave and idealistic Sophie, Philip, Jose, and Deion realize their only hope for freedom is escaping Spain's borders.
By continuing the story of this band of volunteers during the Spanish Civil War, A Whisper of Freedom proves that there are whispers of hope and liberty that resonate through even the darkest night.
