Una mágica novela sobre las trampas del deseo, la tragedia del amor y los lazos indestructibles de la familia.

Las mujeres Laguna han cargado con una terrible maldición desde el principio de su linaje: una tras otra sufren mal de amores y sólo dan a luz niñas que perpetúan esta cruel herencia. Pero cuando después de décadas de pasiones prohibidas y amores trágicos nace el primer varón, se abre la puerta de la esperanza. ¿Será este el fin de la maldición?

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

An “exuberant” (El Mundo) debut novel of a family bound by searing passions, an earthy magic, and a very unusual curse

The Laguna women suffer from an odd affliction: each generation is condemned to tragic love affairs and to give birth only to girls who are unable to escape the cruel fate of their mothers. One fateful hunting season in their small Castilian town, a young landowner arrives and begins a passionate affair with Clara Laguna, the latest in the family line, daughter of a one-eyed woman known as “the Laguna witch.” He leaves her pregnant with yet another daughter, but the seeds of change are sown. Eventually the long-awaited son—Santiago, the great-great grandson of Clara—is born. A window of hope is opened, but is the curse truly over?

Introducing a cast of memorable, eccentric characters from a bearded, mute female cook to the local do-gooding priest and the indelible Laguna women themselves, The House of Impossible Loves is a feat of imaginative storytelling that marks the arrival of a talented new novelist.
