Angela Jackson - Spanish Civil war

Angela Jackson, an English doctor of History, kindly visited our group and gave an interesting talk on the subject of writing and publishing books a while ago.

She has recently published a further non-fiction book on the Spanish Civil War - "For Us It Was Heaven" tells the story of a young, upper middle-class nurse - Patience Darton- who in the 1930s who becomes dramatically caught up in Spain's civil war and the passionate political issues of her times, but whose intimate writings reveal emotions and attitudes that will strike a chord with most self-aware and determined women today."
