At the close of World War II, London is in ruins and Rose Daniel isn't at peace. Eight years ago, her brother disappeared while fighting alongside Gypsy partisans in Spain. From his letters, Rose has just two clues to his whereabouts--his descriptions of the spectacular south slopes of the Sierra Nevada and his love for a woman who was carrying his child. In Spain, it has been eight years since Lola Aragon's family was massacred. Eight years since she rescued a newborn girl from the arms of her dying mother and ran for her life. She has always believed that nothing could make her return...until a plea for help comes from a desperate stranger. Now, Rose, Lola, and the child set out on a journey from the wild marshes of the Camargue to the dazzling peaks of Spain's ancient mountain communities. As they come face-to-face with war's darkest truths, their lives will be changed forever by memories, secrets, and friendships.… (mer)

I found this novel kind of slow until about halfway through when it finally picked up and I finished it in one sitting. It's very descriptive in every way. The flowers, the smells, the sounds, and the people. It's alive with texture and color - so if you like that sort of thing, you will love it. Too much narrative about the flowers and the sky doesn't hold my attention for long, but when the plot finally took over, it was very good with a twist at the end I did not see coming. I did enjoy learning about the gypsy way of life and how they were persecuted in that time period. The information regarding the Civil War, which occurred in Spain during WWII, was also very interesting and sad. Its impact on the two women in the story is horrendous and heartfelt. The fact that they survived and became stronger is a testimony that what doesn't kill you does make you stronger. I thought this was a good read and would recommend it to anyone who likes historical fiction. ( )

"The Snow Gypsy" started well and I was enjoying the intertwining stories of Rose and Lola, and the strong bond of friendship that developed between them. I adored all the beautiful references to rural Spain and the detailed descriptions of gypsy life as WWII came to a close. They brought the setting alive. I also appreciated the history the novel included regarding the Spanish Civil War. The flamenco dance sequences were also a big plus.

However, I was never emotionally connected with the characters and was disappointed with the last few chapters. The ending was flat and left me unsatisfied. ( )

Be prepared to be transported to another time and a way of life that is hard to imagine but, so brilliantly told. Rose hasn't been at peace since her brother disappeared while fighting in Spain. She only has clues from his letters to go on. So she sets out to find out what happened to him. 8 years ago, Lola's family was massacred and she found a newborn with the bodies and ran for her life. Their journeys will now bring them together as they search for the truth. ( )

Post WWII and the Spanish Civil War, two women (Rose from England and Lola from Spain) both dealing with personal loses through the atrocities of these wars meet by chance and learn that their tattered pasts are closely connected. Although the book can at times be a page-turner, often the coincidences and setbacks are more like a TV mini-series than anything that could possibly happen in real life. Yes the horrors in this book are based on facts of these wars, but to continually happen to these two women and to consistently get in their way at just the most inopportune time becomes a little over the top. But the book is entertaining most of the time and therefore worth something. ( )
