Remember Me (by Mario Escobar) … full of atrocities of the Spanish Civil War

As much as I loved the author’s first two historical fiction novels, this one was just too hard to get into.  I was looking forward to learning more about the Spanish Civil War.  However, I felt like it was too difficult getting invested in the characters and the story.  I don’t feel like the main characters, the Alcalde children, are well developed.

The book is full of the atrocities that the people suffered during the Spanish Civil War.  But it felt like it was just a rehashing of the facts.  And those were horrendous…from the detailed tortures and the sexual abuse.

Thank you to NetGalley and Thomas Nelson Publishers for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
