Holy Ghost

Conway, K.D.


It is said that history does not repeat, but rather it rhymes.Today, Spain is a modern, civilized, and progressive society, and it is difficult to imagine that less than 100 years ago that father was set against son, brother against brother, and neighbor against neighbor, in a fight to the death. But yet it was. From 1931 to 1936 Spain descended into chaos, disorder, and widespread violence, and then, from 1936 to 1939 a horrific Civil War erupted and over 500,000 Spaniards were killed.In Holy Ghost, the reader follows three exceptional young people through their journey into this inferno. The characters in the book, with their differences in upbringings, outlooks, and attitudes, highlight the creaking fault lines in Spanish society...the fault lines which cannot hold. Back and forth the forces good and evil push against one another. Holy Ghost is a mirror of our time.
