Please join us on Tuesday, July 23 at 6 p.m. in the Conference Room of the Library’s Administrative Suite, MC 4.2 (4th floor), for a discussion of María Dueñas’s internationally best-selling novel, The Time in Between (2012), translated from the Spanish by Daniel Hahn. The book is available for loan from the UTD library and for purchase from the UTD Bookstore.

About the book:

The inspiring international bestseller of a seemingly ordinary woman who uses her talent and courage to transform herself first into a prestigious couturier and then into an undercover agent for the Allies during World War II.

As England, Germany, and the other great powers launch into the dire conflict of World War II, Sira is persuaded to return to Madrid, where she takes on a new identity to embark upon the most dangerous undertaking of her career. As the preeminent couturier for an eager clientele of Nazi officers’ wives, Sira becomes embroiled in the half-lit world of espionage and political conspiracy rife with love, intrigue, and betrayal.
