My computer has been down for a week and just now working again. I asked the Countess about the book being in English and last year she was working with an agent here in USA. Not sure if the book is being printed or not. We would all love to have it!

Is there a chance this book will be translated into English?

Hi! I haven't seen writing recently, I'm wondering about the countess. Does anyone know a way to get a message to her? Thanks so much!

I now have a copy of The Countess of Romanones new book, END OF AN ERA. This was graciously given to me by my friend Roseanne Piraneo Hill. It is wonderful! I hope all of you get to read it!

In the SPY WORE RED, the Countess waa trained at what was called, "The farm". The farm was also called RTU. There were many sections of the farm, such as sections A,B.C.D.E.F. and these were all seperated teaching special training in things, such as special type operations, cypher coding, etc.
If any of you stateside order movies from NETFLIX, the following movie: Garbo: The SPY is now available and the Countess is featured four different times speaking about the OSS. This is an extremely well done, different documentary with a wonderfully different sort of soundtrack. Kudos, to Aline, the Countess of Romanones.

Thank you "Elderly Friend", and I hope we do get a sequel.
Living in Spain in 1961, opened my eyes to Franco. I learned so very much about his politics.
Hopefully Aline will write another book, and then we will have even more to chat about regarding Aline, The Countess of Romanones. Although she is in the media so often we can keep up with her.

I'm pleased you enjoyed the book and I do hope the author writes a sequel.
Here is one I actually fear reading: THE SPANISH HOOLOCAUST by Paul Preston. It was reviewed in the NYTimes Book Review. As one who has visited Spain several times and has Spanish friends, I was saddened to learn how bad Franco and his supporters were; as cruel as the Nazis. Guess we best stick with novels: the truth is too had to stomach!

To My Elderly Friend: I spent hours for 3 days reading The Time In Between which was a fantastic novel that I could hardly put down. Duenas' plot and storyline is remarkable and
the facts seem correct and some of the characters of course are real. Suner, Hoare, etc.
I could not help but notice that some of the things I read about, ie. her, the Social gatherings Siri attended were reminiscent, & so much like ALine's in her books. I hope the Countess has read this book, which I suspect she has. Thank you "Elderly Friend" for suggesting I read it.

October Mist, I too cannot wait until a movie about the Countess hits the Theatres. I hope that it will happen while she is alive and kicking. I too, read every book I can get my hands on regarding Spies, espionage,CIA,FBI,Iterpol, etc.
In the Countesses new book published in Spain, she has a chapter dedicated to her stories about the Windsors, and I am trying hard to decipher. Eager to read it all.

I enjoy all of the Countess' books however embellished they are in my opinion. She also confirmed a lot of what I have read in other spy books like Blowing My Cover, a true modern day female CIA spy story. I have also read Chuck Barris' book in which he claimed that the CIA fronted the Dating Game AND that he was a hired gun. Some may find it hard to believe but it has the ring of truth. I can hardly wait for a movie about the Countess and yes, she looks fabulous!
