Summary

De la mano de la autora de Sabrina y Corina, finalista del National Book Award, nos llega una historia épica de traición, amor y destino que abarca cinco generaciones de una familia chicana e indígena en el oeste de los Estados Unidos.

En cada generación hay una vidente que mantiene las historias con vida.

Luz “Little Light” Lopez, lectora de hojas de té y lavandera, debe valerse por sí misma cuando su hermano Diego, encantador de serpientes y obrero fabril, tiene que huir de la ciudad a causa de una turba violenta de supremacistas blancos. Mientras Luz se abre camino en el Denver de los años treinta, empieza a tener visiones que la transportan a la tierra indígena donde nació: la Tierra Perdida. Luz presencia los orígenes de sus ancestros, cómo floreció su familia y cómo se vio amenazada. Atestigua las fuerzas siniestras que han devastado su pueblo y sus tierras durante generaciones. Al final, depende de ella salvar de las garras del olvido las historias de su familia.

Con la voz singular de Kali Fajardo-Anstine, las entretenidas y complicadas vidas de los Lopez llenan las páginas de esta saga multigeneracional. Mujer de luz es una novela cautivadora sobre la supervivencia, los secretos de familia y el amor, poblada por un reparto de personajes inolvidables, cada uno tan especial, memorable y complejo como nuestra querida heroína, Luz.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A dazzling epic of betrayal, love, and fate that spans five generations of an Indigenous Chicano family in the American West, from the author of the National Book Award finalist Sabrina & Corina.

There is one every generation, a seer who keeps the stories.

Luz “Little Light” Lopez, a tea leaf reader and laundress, is left to fend for herself after her older brother, Diego, a snake charmer and factory worker, is run out of town by a violent white mob. As Luz navigates 1930s Denver, she begins to have visions that transport her to her Indigenous homeland in the nearby Lost Territory. Luz recollects her ancestors’ origins, how her family flourished, and how they were threatened. She bears witness to the sinister forces that have devastated her people and their homelands for generations. In the end, it is up to Luz to save her family stories from disappearing into oblivion.

Written in Kali Fajardo-Anstine’s singular voice, the wildly entertaining and complex lives of the Lopez family fill the pages of this multigenerational western saga. Woman of Light is a transfixing novel about survival, family secrets, and love—filled with an unforgettable cast of characters, all of whom are just as special, memorable, and complicated as our beloved heroine, Luz.
