9788466319195: Memorial Del Convento/Baltazar and Blimunda (Gongoli) (Spanish Edition)

A 'brilliant...enchanting novel' (New York Times Book Review) of romance, deceit, religion, and magic set in 18th Century Portugal. In the midst of the terrors of the Inquisition, a seemingly mismatched couple discovers the wonders of love. This rich, irreverent tale, full of magic and adventure and graced with extraordinary historical detail, is a tapestry of human folly and human will. Description in Spanish: El rey de Portugal esta preocupado, pero la promesa de construir un convento franciscano sera compensada con el nacimiento de un sucesor. Mientras tanto, Baltasar Mateus, Sietesoles, intenta sobrevivir con un gancho y un espigon a falta de su mano izquierda. Blimunda, su companera, es capaz de ver el interior de las cosas y de las personas. Con ella, todo sera mas llevadero. El padre Bartolomeu Lourenšo quiere volar, construir la passarola que le lleve por encima del rey, su convento, sus subditos y las nubes, aunque le cueste el destierro y la locura.
