Las fuentes del silencio

Description

La autora de Lágrimas en el mar y Entre tonos de gris regresa con un extraordinario y cautivante relato de amor, silencio y secretos situado en la época de la dictadura de Franco en España.
 
Madrid, 1957. Bajo la dictadura fascista del General Francisco Franco, España esconde un oscuro secreto. Entre los empresarios y turistas extranjeros que llegan al país con la acogedora promesa del sol y del buen vino se encuentra Daniel Matheson, hijo de un magnate petrolero de Texas que llega a Madrid con sus padres a los dieciocho años con la esperanza de conocer la patria de su madre a través del lente de su cámara fotográfica. La fotografía—y el destino—lo llevan a conocer a Ana, cuya familia enfrenta obstáculos que revelan las consecuencias de la reciente Guerra Civil Española y las escalofriantes repercusiones de la fortuna y el miedo. Las fotografías de Daniel lo dejan con preguntas incómodas entre acechantes peligros y se ve acorralado, teniendo que tomar decisiones difíciles para proteger a los que ama. Las vidas y los sentimientos acaban enfrentándose, revelando el lado más oscuro de la soleada ciudad de Madrid.
 
La gran narradora Ruta Sepetys vuelve a arrojar luz en uno de los rincones más oscuros de la historia reciente en esta épica y desgarradora novela sobre la identidad, el amor inolvidable, las repercusiones de la guerra y la violencia oculta tras el silencio, inspirada por los conflictos reales de la España en postguerra.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION 

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Salt to the Sea and Between Shades of Gray comes a gripping, extraordinary portrait of love, silence, and secrets under a Spanish dictatorship.


Madrid, 1957. Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding a dark secret. Meanwhile, tourists and foreign businessmen flood into Spain under the welcoming promise of sunshine and wine. Among them is eighteen-year-old Daniel Matheson, the son of an oil tycoon, who arrives in Madrid with his parents hoping to connect with the country of his mother's birth through the lens of his camera. Photography--and fate--introduce him to Ana, whose family's interweaving obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War--as well as chilling definitions of fortune and fear. Daniel's photographs leave him with uncomfortable questions amidst shadows of danger. He is backed into a corner of difficult decisions to protect those he loves. Lives and hearts collide, revealing an incredibly dark side to the sunny Spanish city.

Master storyteller Ruta Sepetys once again shines light into one of history's darkest corners in this epic, heart-wrenching novel about identity, unforgettable love, repercussions of war, and the hidden violence of silence--inspired by the true postwar struggles of Spain.

"This gripping, often haunting historical novel offers a memorable portrait of fascist Spain." -Publishers Weekly, *STARRED REVIEW*
