QUADRES D’UNA EXPOSICIÓ
The links between four generations of women in the same family. A shared sentimental geography clouded by the traumatic passing of one of them
For seven days and seven nights, a house with a view to the lake and an autumn landscape will accompany the confidential conversation between a mother and a daughter that will transport the readers beyond time and space. The story will invite them to embark on an emotional trip starting before the Spanish Civil War and extending to present times with only one purpose: to reveal the most private episodes in the lives of the people who preceded them.
Mutual understanding, sympathy and affection will bring down the veils of the past one by one. As these veils slowly fall, light will permeate gradually the soul of the two women, and finally dissipate the doubts and fears that were oppressing them. The old scenes will gain color and the characters of the past will come to life, speaking, shouting, laughing or crying.
All in all, the book is a gallery of portraits in a wide range of tonalities: the greyness of winter, placid ocres, the tender green of early love, and the red of passion. There are bold strokes and subtle tones, leading into the lives of a few women connected by secrets and memories, and into a scenery presided by a house and a coppery grove reflected on the calm waters of the lake.
