Descripción

Paperback. Described by author Fay Weldon as vivid, lively and accomplished, Souvenirs of the Revolution is a telenovela-like family saga novel set during the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Betrayal, sexual deviance, rigid morality and a fatal subservience to moral correctness drives the Montelejos clan. Complex and self-serving, innocent and deluded, larger than life, an illustrious family line in its final decline. Mariabella Montelejos, who tries to sell her only daughter for the price of a new carriage during the bloodiest part of the Revolution. Her daughter, Portensia Montelejos, who leaves her mothers body to rot in the front room after her house is taken at the point of a gun. Gloria Vasquez, celebrated beauty, practicing witch, and tormentor of her step-sister, Teresa: ill, gullible, naive, awoken to her destiny by the surreal birth of her daughter. Paulina, a child who once communed with the holy, made an empty vessel by the abuse of her father and revered as a living saint as she lies dying in a Pueblano convent. The men of the family, weak and susceptible to the mandates of their dying class, are no match for the forces of such women. Evil abuser Ebner Collins, paralyzed by a jealous mans bullet in the middle of the Sinai. Hernando Vasquez, cowed into marriage by the longing for his dead wife, Evelyn Cuthbert. Guiermo Fuentes de Solis, cuckolded husband. Jaime Vasquez, who hears voices and lives at the bottom of a bottle, unable to save his cousin Paulina. The Revolution is the beginning of the end for Montelejos, and the miraculous will be its undoing. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
