A World Between Us by Lydia Syson

Felix (Felicity) is training to be a nurse in London in 1936. A chance meeting with a young communist idealist, Nat, results in her following him to Spain to help the Left in their brutal civil war against the Nationalists. The reality of war is a shock to both her and Nat.

A fascinating insight into the brutal Spanish Civil War; so often overshadowed by the events of WW2. The violence, the hatred and the destruction are all there, along with the idealism and the politics. This is not just the moving story of Felix and Nat, but also of the Spanish people and those many fighters who gave their lives for their beliefs.
