Remember Me

A Spanish Civil War Novel
$19.49
($26.99)
From international bestseller Mario Escobar comes a 20th-century historical novel of tragedy and resilience inspired by Spain's famed Children of Morelia and the true events that shaped their lives.

Historians refer to the Spanish Civil War as one of the bloodiest wars of the twentieth century. In 1937, at Mexico's request and offer, nearly 500 children from Spain--remembered as Los Ni os de Morelia--were relocated via ship to Mexico to escape the war's violence. These children traveled across the sea without their families and were expected to return at the war's end. No one could have foreseen another world war was on the way--or that that Franco's regime would prevent the children from coming home. These enduring conflicts trapped the children in a country far from their homeland, and many never made it back.

Remember Me is Mario Escobar's novelization of these events, as told by a fictional survivor--one of the children of Morelia--who looks back upon his life after making the long and devastating journey across the Atlantic. This story explores the endurance of the human spirit as well as the quandary of a parent's impossible decision, asking: At what cost do you protect your child in the face of uncertainty?
