In 1935, Miguel Navarro finds himself on the wrong side of the Spanish Nationalists, so he flees to Guernica, the most ancient town of the Basque region. In the midst of this idyllic, isolated bastion of democratic values, Miguel finds more than a new life-he finds a love that not even war, tragedy or death can destroy. The bombing of Guernica was a devastating experiment in total warfare by the German Luftwaffe in the run-up to World War II . For the Basques, it was an attack on the soul of their ancient nation. History and fiction merge seamlessly in this beautiful novel about the resilience of family, love, and tradition in the face of hardship.

Juana I de Castilla, era la reina más preparada de todas las cortes europeas, sin embargo, la desconfianza y las traiciones de sus seres queridos le impidieron gobernar el reino que había heredado. Juana la Loca era la legítima heredera del trono de Castilla y del trono de Aragón, tras la muerte de sus hermanos y nietos estaba destinada a ser la reina más grande de la historia de España. Le impidieron ocupar el trono que le correspondía las traiciones de su padre, Fernando el Católico, de su amado, Felipe el Hermoso y de su propio hijo, el emperador Carlos V. En Juana la reina loca de amor acompañamos a la hija de los Reyes Católicos desde su nacimiento hasta su muerte, enclaustrada en contra de su voluntad, vejada y maltratada en el castillo de Tordesillas mientras que su padre, su marido y su hijo, se repartían el reino que a ella le correspondía. La novela supone un ejemplo perfecto de biografía novelada, Yolanda Scheuber utiliza su estilo tan característico y poético para traernos esta historia llena de rigor histórico y literatura de alta calidad. Reivindica la figura de Juana de Castilla y nos lleva a conocer el amor que sintió por su esposo, la ternura con la que crió a sus hijos, la valentía con la que afrontó su destino y la abnegación con la que sufrió su encierro y las torturas a las que fue sometida y que, a la postre, la llevaron a la locura que históricamente se ha usado para minusvalorar a una mujer de una importancia vital en la historia de España. Razones para comprar la obra: - La figura de Juana I, Juana la Loca, merece ser recordada por la valentía con la que afrontó los problemas en su vida, pese a ser traicionada por sus seres queridos, y por su relevancia en la historia de España, pese a que no le dejaran reinar. - La Europa de los siglos XV y XVI es un escenario cautivante, revolucionario y vertiginoso, el lector no podrá sustraerse de él. - La autora es una auténtica experta en ese periodo de la historia de España, ha invertido numerosos años en su investigación y es una apasionada de la novela histórica. - El libro ha tenido una enorme aceptación del público y ha sido necesario hacer una segunda edición. Una historia inigualable protagonizada por una mujer sensible rodeada de unos personajes mezquinos y ambiciosos y que son plasmados a la perfección por la escritora argentina. ?A medida que se avanza por sus páginas, el lector se acerca inevitablemente a la figura de la Infanta, enamorándose de su humanidad, al tiempo que le invade una inmensa tristeza por la crueldad padecida por uno de los personajes más entrañables que ha dado la historia de España.? (Web Hislibris) ?La información diagramada en un árbol genealógico que trae el libro es una guía para el lector más principiante que ayuda a comprender la historia con perfección. Sin duda es una novela bien estructurada con los parámetros contemporáneos que le favorecen para mantener el interés de los lectores.? (Blog El astrolabio y la péndola) ?Se puede decir que es una novela histórica muy completa, pues no se deja ningún hecho histórico en el tintero (al contrario, se hacen continuas apostillas para complementar lo que se narra) pero no olvida su cometido principal, que no es otro que centrarse en la figura de Juana y en su evolución a lo largo de los años.? (Web Devoradora de libros) ?La autora nos ofrece también la visión de una época dura, cruel, austera, donde primaban los intereses económicos y las alianzas políticas y donde los pequeños infantes eran meros instrumentos para conseguir aliarse con otras naciones y llegar a ser el imperio más poderoso de Europa.?

October 1936. Spanish architect Ignacio Abel arrives at Penn Station, the final stop on his journey from war-torn Madrid, where he has left behind his wife and children, abandoning them to uncertainty. Crossing the fragile borders of Europe, he reflects on months of fratricidal conflict in his embattled country, his own transformation from a bricklayer's son to a respected bourgeois husband and professional, and the all-consuming love affair with an American woman that forever alters his life. A rich, panoramic portrait of Spain on the brink of civil war, In the Night of Time details the passions and tragedies of a country tearing itself apart. Compared in scope and importance to War and Peace, Muñoz Molina's masterpiece is the great epic of the Spanish Civil War written by one of Spain's most important contemporary novelists.

On 12 October 1972, a Uruguayan Air Force plane carrying members of the 'Old Christians' rugby team (and many of their friends and family members) crashed into the Andes mountains. I Had to Survive offers a gripping and heartrending recollection of the harrowing brink-of-death experience that propelled survivor Roberto Canessa to become one of the world's leading paediatric cardiologists. Canessa, a second-year medical student at the time, tended to his wounded teammates amidst the devastating carnage of the wreck and played a key role in safeguarding his fellow survivors, eventually trekking with a companion across the hostile mountain range for help. This fine line between life and death became the catalyst for the rest of his life. This uplifting tale of hope and determination, solidarity and ingenuity gives vivid insight into a world famous story. Canessa also draws a unique and fascinating parallel between his work as a doctor performing arduous heart surgeries on infants and unborn babies and the difficult life-changing decisions he was forced to make in the Andes. With grace and humanity, Canessa prompts us to ask ourselves: what do you do when all the odds are stacked against you?

It was a time of discovery and decadence, when life became a gamble and the gold that poured endlessly into the port of Sevilla devalued money, marriage, and love itself. In the midst of these treacherous times, Juan Tenorio is born and then abandoned in the barn of a convent. Raised secretly by the nuns, he learns to love and worship all women and wants nothing more than to be a priest, until he falls in love with one of the sisters. When their affair is discovered, Juan leaves the Church forever. He is soon recruited to be a spy by the powerful Marquis de la Mota, who teaches him to become the world's greatest libertine and seducer of women. But when he crosses swords with the most powerful man in the Empire, Don Juan must escape the murderous fury of the Inquisitor who battles all forms of debauchery, deviance, and heresy. It is after knowing countless women that he is convinced by the Marquis to keep a diary, and it is here within its pages that Don Juan reveals his greatest adventures and the Arts of Passion he mastered. But what finally compels him to confess everything and risk losing his life, livelihood, and honor is the most perilous adventure of all -- the irresistible fall into the madness of love with the only woman who could ever make him forget all others.

A celebrated international author, listed among the "21 top writers for the 21st century" (The Observer, U.K.) As David Imaz, on the threshold of adulthood, divides his time between his uncle Juan's ranch and his life in the village, where he reluctantly practices the accordion, a tradition that his authoritarian father insists he continue, he becomes increasingly aware of the long shadow cast by the Spanish Civil War. Letters found in a hotel attic, along with a silver pistol, lead David to unravel the story of the conflict, including his father's association with the fascists, and the opposition of his uncle, who took considerable risks in helping to hide a wanted republican. With affection and lucidity, Bernardo Atxaga describes the evolution of a young man caught between country and town, between his uncle the horse-breeder and his political father. The course of David's life changes one summer night when he agrees to shelter a group of students on the run from the military police. This is the most accomplished novel to date by an internationally celebrated writer. The Accordionist's Son is memorable for its epic scope—from 1936 to 1999—and the details with which it sparkles in gorgeous prose. It is easy to understand why The Observer listed Atxaga as one of the top twenty-one writers for the twenty-first century.
