Thank you so much and I am "off to get the book." I am still looking for a copy of Aline's new book and hope it will soon be published in the U.S.

I recently completed an exceptional novel set in Spain during that country's Civil War and in the early years of WW II as England and Germany spied on one another as they attempted to influence Spain's dictator, Franco.
The book iS THE TIME IN BETWEEN and the author Maria Duenas, a professor at Spain's University of Murcia. The book is well-plotted and though quite long it never lags. Her characters are well-developed, some even based on real persons. But what is especially significant is that the author has done her research and the time, places and events are factual. In fact, she even included a bibliography at the end of the story, something memoirists of this period fail to do.
Best wishes, and I hope you read and enjoy THE TIME IN BETWEEN.

In response to the question about the health of the Countess, I can assure you that she is in good health, and is still a vivacious woman. She is still very active, positve, cheerful,and on top of things as she always has been. Therfore, I hope this answers your questions. I might add as a former professional model, she still looks like a "model" today. We should all be so lucky!

Welcome to the message board, Carolina! As you can see from the past posts, we can be quite a lively group. Roseanne and Anita seem to be the most likely to know the recent health of the Countess. Also, her nephews visit this site occasionally. Maybe they can fill us in. I'm guessing she's as vivacious as ever.

Just wanted to say that I am glad I found this message board. The Countess' books have always been some of my favorites. What a life she has led!
How is her health these days?

If, indeed the TV Series comes to reality, then I think it will be wonderful! Let's hope the deal goes through, and it actually happens. These take time, so it is highly likely it has been in the works for awhile, and then to finalize.
I do not think the Countess would say anything if it isn't in fact being discussed.

Ooooh, Roseanne, a TV series... That would be even better than a one time movie. The suspense and anticipation building from week to week would be awesome. Oh please, gods of the media world, grant us this one wish!

Robert, you are to be commended for your service to our country during World War II, but I still take issue with your constant discrediting of the Countess and, in particular, her portrayal of Edmundo Lassalle. As I have written previously, after correspondence with the Countess, it must be stated that she considered Edmundo a QUOTE dear friend END QUOTE and that she portrayed him exactly as she knew him. Neither the Countess nor her friends knew of any child he may have fathered, because at the wedding of Edmundo to Princess Agatha Ratibor in Madrid, he claimed that he was marrying for the first time. The Countess maintains that her stories are true but does admit that QUOTE certain facts had to be changed slightly END QUOTE and that she changed some names to protect some people. Finally, the Countess is very grateful to those who enjoy her books. She states that she hopes the film will finally come out in a TV series which QUOTE now seems possible END QUOTE.

Robert, I read the book and I have read much about Ricardo Sicre. Very interesting Spy, indeed.
Also,who exactly was the man that was the Boss of Aline during her tenure in Spain in the beginning. I know he wasn't her handler. So, Robert I figure you have the answer. I kept searching for the info but never actually found it.

I think it is pretty well known that money, aka commerce, makes the world go 'round, and all that entails. Please tell us something new.
