Told through Natalia's stream of consciousness, the novel is filled with precise observations, magical ramblings, exquisite metaphors, and a feeling as rushed, rippling, and languorous as a river running a long course. Merce Rodoreda was twenty-six and just gaining recognition as an important author when Franco took power and repressed the Catalan language; she went into exile and did not write again for twenty years. The Time of the Doves, written when she was fifty-three, is a stunning recreation of both a Spanish history and the life of one hard-working woman.
