THE PRINCESS OF JADE

Author: Wednesday 29 October 2014

A novel about love, risk and adventure, about leaving your homeland in search for your dreams. A colour kaleidoscope, where glasses not only allow light to get through and draw shapes, but also sensations, aromas and textures. A place where every feeling is present and can create a changing landscape.

“The Princess of Jade” personifies the spirituality and knowledge of ancient China, from contemplation and respect for the essential; but, in spite of her apparent fragility, she is a strong and determined being.

Yu is a sixteen-year-old girl that meets love for the first time. Grown up with ideals of millenary traditions, she suddenly feels her existence turn upside down. Generous, smooth and perfumed by the subtlety of unknown flowers, Yu is also enigmatic, like the jade stones she is so fond of.

A story of the contrast between what is given to us and the discovery of other realities, of other worlds, either unknown or that we had forgotten.
