When Angela turns up in a remote Spanish mountain village, she is so tall and so thin and so pale that everyone thinks she is a ghost or a fairy or the dreadful mantequero that comes in the night and sucks the fat from your bones.
The book unfolds each character’s past in an intriguing way. I liked the way the villagers came to trust Angela after their initial skepticism. Domingo was an innocent, warm young man who was likable from the first.
There were good descriptions of the people of the town and the area. I felt like I really got an idea of the surroundings.
There were a lot of eye opening facts about the recent history of
which I didn't know and found interesting also. The book showed how the citizens of a small town fought for what they held dear. Spain
Domingo’s Angel was a reading experience I won’t soon forget.
