Publisher description: A gripping personal account of the Spanish Civil War, this memoir is also the story of a man rediscovering his roots. The author's parents were separated in the confusion of the war and his mother was eventually assassinated by a fascist execution team in her hometown of Zamora when the author was just a small child. He was reared by foster parents in the United States and was not to return to Spain for another four decades. The death of his mother, Amparo, was cloaked in secrecy, and deepened by his father's refusual to disclose any information about her. Finally, at the age of forty-six, after his father's death and with his wife Judith's assistance as translator, he traveled back to his native land to retrace the events leading to his mother's death. In so doing, he finally made his peace with the past.
