Synopsis: After begetting the last of his three kids, an old man dies on top of the body of a young woman, initiating a tragic and wonderful lineage. A century of life of El Salvador from Magdalena’s vantage point, that extinguishes in a bedroom in which she reminisces about magical events, such as the story of the boy who walked on the waters of a river, the curse of a young girl whose wishes will come to pass, the return of a man who worked in the construction of the Panama Canal to meet the love of his life, or the first murders of a war that would end up being the daily anguish of the world’s most dangerous country. A novel of true love pierced by misfortune.

“An extraordinary game of balances, a brilliant literary web of lights and shadows that will make the reader shudder.” Almudena Grandes
