NOVELA. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2016. 488 PÁGINAS

The year is 1920. An economic crisis has sent the price of cotton through the floor while workers campaign for their rights. In the central government President Yrigoyen tries to calm an explosive situation but misleading rumours abound and thousands of strikers end up shot and thrown into mass graves.
Iorwerth Awstin, a descendent of the first Welsh settlers, has bought a sheep ranch on the point of bankruptcy. There he meets Julia, the granddaughter of the previous owner, a wild young woman traumatised by her orphanhood and desperate to be loved. Burdened by a dark past, enormous feelings of guilt and a family that has suffered one misfortune after another, Iorwerth must withstand the waves of violence sweeping through the region and resist his turbulent attraction towards the girl. Then one day Julia finds a diary that contains the terrible truth he has refused to share himself.
Faithfully reconstructing one of the most tragic periods of Argentine history, Gabriela Exilart surprises us once more with a novel that combines searing passion with excellent writing.
