Y , por su puesto, siempre de la mano de unos personajes que son maravillosa y terriblemente humanos. Convinced she was abducted from her home in Spain as a toddler, Eva has always longed for a loving mother, her real mother. All My Wild Mothers wrests nature writing from the 'lone enraptured male' and shows how our care for the natural world is inseparable from our care for each other.

Again, using my spainard card here, the whole bought baby moment could have been So Much More Magnanimous. The men in the tale were mostly unhelpful, with the exceptions of Nigel, whose character is endearing, and Eva’s eventual partner.The religious subtone was excellent, don't get me wrong, and at the end it made sense, but it also got pushed to the front, instead of other areas that could be explored like fr But once in a while you find a character that hits you at your core, and that's what Eva did for me.
