Here’s the universal link and book description.
The Olive Tree – A Spanish Civil War Saga
Set between April 1937 and December 1938, The Olive Tree is a mini-series of five novellas based on true events.
The stories in The Olive Tree – Roots, Branches, Leaves, Fruit and Flowers chronicle the lives of Heini Hopkins, a young nurse from an impoverished part of South Wales, and Naomi Parker, a wealthy author from a privileged background.
In Roots, Heini is home in Wales nursing her sick mother while Naomi is attending launch parties for her latest novel. The civil war in Spain seems a world away, until the fascists bomb and destroy Guernica, murdering hundreds of men, women and children. Heini’s boyfriend, Deiniol Price, a coal miner, feels he must rally to the Spanish Republic’s cause and volunteer for the International Brigades while Naomi’s paramour, Count Nicolas Esteban, a pilot, dreams of glory, fighting for the fascists.
Should the women leave the safety of Wales for the bloody battlefields of Spain? And if they decide to follow their men, what fate awaits them?

They do things with such grace and elegance on the Continent. Paris Opera’s ballet dancers protesting against austerity.
”Okay, Stan, here’s the plan. We’ll get all the lads from the steelworks to dress up in tutus…”
Could get messy. As with all of Johnson’s policies, I don’t think he’s thought this one through…
Dear reader, this will all make sense when you’re sober in the morning…
Santa knows me too well 🤣
Santa also delivered all these lovely books and DVDs, most to help me with my Spanish Civil War and Eve’s War series.
To my beloved…
Of course, I might be thinking murderous thoughts 😉
