WOMAN OF SPAIN by Scott O'Dell


Email this review


A first novel by a Californian about California a hundred years ago, the setting the settlement which became San Francisco, then a Spanish trading post, a garrison and a Mission. In opposition and conflict, the call of the land to Marta, daughter of Spain, who has put her life's blood into building a home -- the call of the sea to New England Jared, mate of the China Bride, forms the theme of a colorful romance. An authentic picture of the times, and good reading.
