Interesting story, heavily fictional, writing was weak

This was a story that took place in Germany, just 20 miles from Dachau in 1946-1948 at a camp for displaced persons (DP's). This book told the stories of three different women who worked there and the situations in which they found themselves. It seemed to me that it was a romance wanna be novel that took place in grim circumstances. Wished they had dropped the romances and just went more deeply into the stories. 345 pages

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing is excellent, and it held my interest from beginning to end. I was ready for a lighter book, and this filled the bill. It is a fictionalization of the period in Agatha Christie's life after her divorce from her first husband. It is filled with travel to exotic locales, a bit of mystery, a bit of romance, and a bit of adventure.

Set in the first six months after the end of World War II, The Snow Gypsy by Lyndsay Jayne Ashford is the story of two women, one searching for answers from the past, while the other tries to forget the past and move into the future. Rose Daniel is searching for answers as to what happened to her brother who came to Spain in 1938 to fight alongside the Partisans. The last letter Rose got described a fountain in a small town in the mountains and the fact that he had fallen in love with a Gypsy woman. There were many atrocities during the Spanish Revolution and flamenco dancer Lola Aragon is trying to forget the horrible deaths of her mother and twin brother who were murdered with a number of other Gypsies. Lola managed to save a new born baby who she is now raising as her daughter. Rose and Lola meet and Lola is able to steer Rose in the direction that she needs to go.

I wanted to like this novel more that I actually did especially when I read that the main character was based on a real person and many of the incidents actually happened. I was intrigued by the setting but unfortunately I never connected with the characters and they didn’t seem to be developed in any significant way. It’s unfortunate that the execution and details of this story were weak as I think there could have been a really good novel here.
