Hello book fans,

July's book is:

The Time Inbetween by Maria Duenas (El tiempo entre costuras)

It's a long book, about Protected content don't worry if you can't finish it but just read enough to be able to join in with the discussion.

Here is some information about the book from Goodreads:

The Time In Between is a word-of-mouth phenomenon that catapulted María Dueñas, a debut author, to the top of Spain's bestseller lists.

This sweeping novel, which combines the storytelling power of The Shadow of the Wind with the irresistible romance of Casablanca, moves at an unstoppable pace. Suddenly left abandoned and penniless in Morocco by her lover, Sira Quiroga forges a new identity. Against all odds she becomes the most sought-after couture designer for the socialite wives of German Nazi officers. But she is soon embroiled in a dangerous political conspiracy as she passes information to the British Secret Service through a code stitched into the hems of her dresses.

As it's by a Spanish author feel free to read the book in Spanish but the discussion itself with happen in English, as always.

Any new people are as always, very welcome.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Best wishes,

Jo
