English term or phrase:On an afternoon of spring rain, María ....
The original: Una tarde de lluvias primaverales, María sufrió
Can I say "An afternoon of" directly (as in Spanish), without the preposition? I think it's not possible.
b. What do you think of "On an afternoon of spring rain"? I could have said On a rainy afternoon of spring but I wanted to be faithful to the style of the author (lluvias primaverales)
