285 pages5 hours


Over a Cup of Coffee is the autobiography of a remarkable woman, Amparo Calvo Echeverria. Born at the time of the Spanish Republic, her memoirs cover the period of the Civil War to the present day. Her troubled relationship with her mother pervades the text, made clear from the outset with an outpouring of emotions on her death. The tragic snatching of her daughters by the authorities on her return to Spain marks the rest of her life. It is the very personal journey of a young woman . . . to adulthood and the richness of a life led. A lesson in optimism and the joys of life.
